Pastor Ford will explain today that praise should be done volitionally, as an act of our will. It doesn’t matter how we feel, we should give God some praise! We could feel like ten miles of bad highway, but we shouldn’t walk out of a worship service without saying something to God in a corporate setting and letting Him know that we appreciate Him, we’re grateful for Him, and we love Him!
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
