Jesus is a taker. The most spectacular robbery didn’t happen in a movie. It happened on a hill called Calvary where Jesus died and took our sins on Himself. He is a taker, who came to take away what we don’t need and give us what we do need.
As we continue this series called Takers, Pastor Ford reminds us about how God elevated Joshua to a place of leadership so he could lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land. He’ll also share some important leadership principles that will help us as we find ourselves in the place to lead others.
As we begin a new study from Joshua chapter 1, Pastor Ford explains that God has called us as believer to be takers. And some of the things that He wants us to take are the promises He gives us in His Word. But which promises are ours to claim? To learn more the promises in God’s Word, join us for today’s Treasured Truth.
As we conclude our study in Hebrews chapter 12, Pastor Ford will remind us that it’s essential for us as followers of Christ to come to a place where we clearly see our own inadequacy. The more we see God in His holiness, the more we should see ourselves in our sinfulness. To learn more, join us for today’s Treasured Truth.
How do you reach someone with the truth of God’s Word, when they are confused about a doctrinal issue and believing an error? You have to start by showing them your genuine concern for them and allowing them to sense your heart of compassion for them. If you don’t start there, then they may confuse you with the “doctrine police” and you may miss the opportunity to help them understand the truth.
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.
