Pastor Ford will remind us that the condemnation of Good Friday was leading to the coronation of Resurrection Sunday. If there were no Good Friday, then there could not be Resurrection Sunday. And he points out that many of us want the power of the resurrection, but we don’t want the pain of the cross.
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.
