Quote of the Week – April 2, 2017

“In the Garden of Gethsemane…Jesus was praying fervently to the point of sweating blood.  Peter, James, and John couldn’t seem to keep their eyes open.  As we approach the Easter season, there is a temptation to close our eyes as well, to avoid looking on Jesus and taking stock of the sacrifice He paid on our behalf.  But the Gospels were written so that we might know Jesus Christ and the salvation He secured through His death on the cross.  We dare not look away.”  –Dr. Charles Stanley
