Burned

Burned Daily Devotion for Lent | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Read Mark 14:53-55. And he was sitting with the guards and warming himself at the fire. (Mark 14:54b) Choosing a place to sit shouldn’t be a big deal, should it? Jesus was on trial for His life in the high priest’s house, and Peter wanted a place to see what would happen to Him.
