Today, Pastor Ford will challenge us to consider these questions—can you worship Jesus, even when you don’t get what you want? If you don’t get the job, if the sickness isn’t healed, if you never get a husband, if you never get a wife, if your children never leave the far country—can you still worship Him? Like Job, can you still say, “The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord?”
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.
