As we begin a series of messages that Pastor Ford hopes will help us get our money right, he has a sobering reminder for those who follow Jesus. As His followers, our main priority ought to be focused only on Him, not on money. The Bible states clearly that we cannot serve the Master and money. We have to have Jesus in a priority position in our lives. The Master has to be first.
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.
