Pastor Ford will explain today that generally speaking, reconciliation takes time. That’s because God has to heal the person who’s been offended. And it often takes a lot of time for that to happen. So, if you’ve asked for forgiveness and are waiting for reconciliation to take place, then realize that it may be a while before the person can respond in a forgiving way.
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.
