How can followers of Christ be encouraged to serve in their local congregations? When they begin to understand that God has led them to the place where they worship, not just to get food from His Word. God led them there to work. And as Pastor Ford will remind us today, that’s all because we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good work!
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.
