The Garden of Gethsemane, recorded live at Community Family Church in Independence, Kentucky, opens with Pastor Tommy Bates leading the choir and congregation in a Spirit-filled jubilee of song—“God’s Not Dead,” “He’s the Great I Am,” and “I Call You Holy”—and closes with a beautiful rendition of “It Was for You He Died” in an anointed altar service where people are saved and blessed.
In The Garden of Gethsemane, Pastor Bates draws a vivid word picture of the intense drama that Jesus underwent in His final days on earth. Gethsemane, which literally means the “crushing out of oil,” is the magnificent setting where our Lord set himself apart to take on the crushing load of all of man’s sins and to voluntarily endure a time where the Father’s face was turned away. Gethsemane was the place where Jesus went through the agony of separation, betrayal by Judas, and the humiliation of arrest prior to His death on the cross. He didn’t need to endure any of this. He could have called ten thousand angels. But He chose not to. And He did it all of his own free will, out of an unfathomable love for each one of us, so that whosoever will may be reconciled with the Father, live an abundant life here, and an eternal one hereafter.
The sanctified music and gripping message will bring you into the presence of the Lord, and reinforce your sense of the wonder of God’s love. It was for you He died, so that you might live.
