Little Things | HOLY WEEK Devotion

Little Things Daily Devotion for Holy Week | Wednesday, April 17 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered … Luke 22:61 It was the little things that caught Peter. A servant girl making conversation at the front gate— “You’re not one of these disciples too, are you?” she asks, possibly with a look at John, who had just talked her into letting Peter in.

Safety | Lent Devotion

Healing His Enemies | Lent Devotion

Healing His Enemies Daily Devotion for Lent | Sunday, March 24 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you …” Luke 6:27 Just a man, rubbing his ear now and then. I suspect that’s what we would have seen if we could have visited the high priest’s house during the weeks after Easter. The man was a servant, and his action would probably go unnoticed. What could be less important? But…
