In honor of Father’s Day coming up this weekend, Pastor Ford begins to challenge men to be “men on the wall.” Today, he will describe how John the Baptist didn’t believe in gray areas. For him, it was black or white and he didn’t care who you were, he’d get up in your face and say, "Thus sayeth the Lord!" And that’s what we need today—if you’re going to be a man on the wall, then you can’t be mealy-mouthed, you can’t be namby-pamby, and wishy-washy. You have to stand on the truth in God’s Word!
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.
