As we continue to look at seeking forgiveness from others, Pastor Ford will explain how we often will make excuses for ourselves. But he will remind us that Jesus died for our sins, not for our excuses. And we need to remember what we’re talking about when we seek forgiveness—it’s not what we feel about what we did to the other person. Rather, it’s about how they felt about what we did to them.
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.
