We all know know that traditional marriage vows require a couple to promise, “until death do us part.” But Pastor Ford points out that is so often not the case in marriage today. As we begin a study in Malachi about divorce, he’ll explain how God established marriage as a permanent institution, with principles that govern it. And so, it’s just like anything else—if we honor the principles, the principles will honor us.
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.
