By: Al Robertson “The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.” (A.W. Tozer) Forgive her? It almost seems impossible, doesn’t it? We might be able to muster up the courage to let occasional insults and slights slide, but when we’re talking about the “big” stuff, something inside of us rises up in rebellion against the idea of forgiving. However, when...

by Lisa Robertson Sometimes, being a follower of Jesus puts us at a crossroads where we are forced to make a decision.  I’m not talking about deciding between right and wrong but about choosing between two behaviors that are both right but seem to contradict one another.   An example of what I mean is the social media response to the recent decision by the New York legislative body to allow abortion right up to the time of birth. Most Christians on Facebook and Twitter seemed to be (understandably so) incensed that the lives...

“Pastor, you are telling me that the only way I can be healed of this horrible pain is to forgive the man who did this to me?”Forgiving others does go against the grain of our nature. We seem to be hardwired for revenge - for justice. It’s the theme of most Hollywood action thrillers. Bad person gets paid back - audience applauds.But in real life, unforgiveness seldom pays dividends. Not good ones anyway. It lurks in the darkest places in our hearts and sucks the joy out of life. It’s...

Four Funerals and a Wedding June 4, 2018 Five years ago in the early summer of 2013, Lisa and I were making a huge transition. We had been in full-time ministry at our home church, WFR Church in West Monroe, since the fall of 1988. 25 years of our lives were spent in training and serving the people of God as well as trying to rescue the souls of as many as possible through sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. We weren’t burned out or disillusioned and we didn’t get asked...

Al—Because of our transparency about infidelity early in our marriage, Lisa and I have had many opportunities to try and help other couples overcome this devastating relationship killer. Sadly, many marriages do not survive this intimacy invasion and the saddest part is that the causes and triggers carry over into future relationships as well. Virtually no person enters into marriage with the idea that one day he or she will become emotionally and/or physically involved with another person. All of the young couples that have stood before me vowing to...

On a typical day, where everything is going good, would you say you are kind or mean, grace-filled or hateful, happy or angry, selfless or selfish? What about on a stressful day where kids are running late, you’re running late, traffic is backed up? What about on Sunday? Are you “just fine” when you leave the car? All smiles? Al & I travel a lot. We see a lot of airports and a lot of flights delayed, flights canceled, missed flights. We really see people at their worst and we’ve all...

Is That Tim Tebow? Last December, Lisa and I took the long journey to Liberia to see some old friends and speak at a very special graduation. The flight to Monrovia hubbed in Amsterdam—as many of those African and eastern European flights do—and we had about a 7 hour layover there. These are tough layovers because you’ve traveled all night and usually don’t get much sleep so you feel like about six miles of muddy road. We were waiting it out in an airline club, which helps a little, but we...
