By Charles Skye (Guest Blogger) I am the first of 5 children born to kind, strong, and hard-working “Mama Cosie Mae”, whose name literally means “cheerful and friendly.”  I lost my mom a few months ago and am reminded everyday of her love and devotion to being both my mother and father during the challenging years of growing up in the south during the civil rights movement in a fatherless household.  My siblings and myself do not share the same father and for that reason there was always a hole in my heart and longing to have some...

By: Al Robertson In our latest book, we shared the story of Anna and Trey.  If you want the full narrative, you can read it in chapter seven, Put Down Those Stones.  But the short version is that their marriage was one step away from being irrevocably shattered because of a whole host of sexual sins and infidelities. Even though Trey had a hand in leading Anna into sexual sin, when he felt betrayed, he not only didn’t freely admit to his own sin at first, but he took an aggressive and judgmental position against his wife.  Those...

Oh, that poor woman that Jesus encountered at the well in John chapter four.  What guilt and shame! What a burden! Never mentioning her failures, trying to hold her head up as she carries on her daily business. And her fellow Samaritans? The ones who knew her?  The ones who’d stood back in the shadows of righteousness and peeked at her going through five husbands...

There’s a chapter I wrote in our latest book, DESPERATE FORGIVENESS, where I ask this very question – How desperate are you? The reason I chose this title for this particular chapter is because unless we come to the place where we realize that we are completely out of options and have nowhere to turn but to our Lord and Savior Jesus, we aren’t in a position where we can receive complete healing and grace. In a sense though, asking you how desperate you are is sort of like asking a...

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...
