Before we say, “I do” in marriage, we should really seek to evaluate the person we are considering as a spouse. Pastor Ford encourages us to find out if the person we want to marry is truly following Christ. We should seek a person who is the whole package. Beware of those who may look good on the outside, but may be a spiritual mess on the inside.
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.
