As we continue to see how Joseph was a great example of obedience in accepting his assignment from God, Pastor Ford will help us understand how things could have been much different for him. He could have disobeyed and walked away. But because he was in tune with God and understood the importance of obedience, we can look back at his story and find encouragement.
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.
