I’m blogging through Wounded by God’s People: Discovering How God’s Love Heals Our Hearts by Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham.
We’re easing into the series with quotes from the foreword and introductory chapters.
Here’s our next quote from Beth Moore’s foreword:
The Bible records a great cloud of witnesses who have been injured within their own community and put outside the camp in one way or another. As New Testament believers, we will find that enduring this brand of pain is a profoundly impactful way we fellowship in the suffering of Christ. For him to have been tried and tempted and torn in all ways such as we have– yet without sin — His betrayer, Judas, had to come from his own close circle. Betrayal betrays a certain camaraderie. A relationship had existed that was then found dispensable. – p. 12

How has rejection by another Christian impacted your relationship with God? Did you feel like you could identify more with Christ, as Beth Moore suggests?
