I started reading Tim Chester's book, You Can Change: God's transforming power for our sinful behaviour & negative emotions recently.

I'm really looking forward to working through it after reading Chapter 1. Check out these quotes:

"We often excuse our actions by saying, 'I'm only human'. There' nothing 'only' about being human: we're truly human as we reflect God's glory."

"Jesus is the glory of the Father. He makes God known in the world. He is God in human form. He shows us what it means to be the image of God and to reflect God's glory... The earthly life of Jesus reflected the glory of God in the goodness of his actions, the beauty of his attitudes and the purity of his thoughts"

"Jesus is the perfect person, the true image of God, the glory of the Father. And God's agenda for change is for us to become more like Jesus."

"The secret of gospel change is being convinced that Jesus is the good life and the fountain of all joy. Any alternative we might choose would be the let-down."

"The great news is that Jesus is not only my example, but also my Redeemer. 'If anyone is in Chris, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Cor 5:17). When you become a Christian, something amazing happens: there's a new creation!"

"What does it mean for us to be a new creation? It means we're re-created in the image of God. It means we're given new life so we can grow like Christ. And being like Christ means being like God, reflecting God's glory as God's image."
