Wounded By God’s People, by Anne Graham Lotz

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?

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:

Wounds caused by our own people aren’t the same as the wounds of an enemy. We can’t chalk them up to random acts of unkindness.

They’re personal. They are inflicted by people who know us, by people we believed have loved us or at least thought kindly of us.

When it is not just our people but God’s people, the wound can gape wide open into a maelstrom of confusion. Alienation. Isolation. Shame. In the words of James, “These things should not be so, my brothers and sisters” (James 3:10b, NET). p. 12

I’ve begun reading Wounded by God’s People: Discovering How God’s Love Heals Our Hearts by Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham.

You can follow the series here as we move through the book together. Over the next few days I’ll introduce the book with a series of short quotes from the foreword and introductory chapters.

It’s already inspiring and informative, and promises to be a fantastic read.

I hope you tag along for the ride!

Beth Moore gets us started with a couple quotes from the foreword:

Authors don’t always choose their books. Their path, and more often their pain, do the picking. (p. 11)

Anne draws on her own journey not to exploit, but to explore, not to villainize, but to empathize. (p. 11)
