As believers, we sometimes can get bogged down in our journey toward maturity, daunted by the perception that we need to abide by a lot of rules. But Pastor Ford will remind us today that we should concentrate on remembering how it was when we first got saved. Do you remember the freedom that you felt and the burden that was lifted off of you? Do you remember when you realized your sins were cast into the depths of the sea? Remember those things and you will remember the true liberty you have in Christ.
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.
