Often people will say that they just have to make a way for themselves to accomplish or overcome something. But Pastor Ford wants to remind us that Jesus has a plan for each of us, and He’s going to make sure we fail as we try to make our own way. We’re going to fail every time, because He’s got a prescribed course that He wants us to follow.
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.
