If you saw a house on fire, and the people inside were unaware their lives were in danger, but you could warn them and save them, would you pass by and keep going? No one would! Then Pastor Ford asks those of us who are followers of Christ—why, then, when you know that people around you are on their way to hell, are you passing them up—even the very loved ones who you know aren’t saved?
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.
