53 They took Jesus to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders and the teachers of the law came together. 54 Peter followed him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest. There he sat with the guards and warmed himself at the fire.

Mark 14:53-54

This is my story, this is my song.

Avoiding my Savior all the day long.

I trail behind him, following at a distance,

Preferring my suffering to His.

Warming my hands by the fire with those who mock my Lord,

I let Him die alone.

Why do I do this? I don’t know.

I wish I understood.

 I’d rather lie beside a fake flame then wait for His fire.

But maybe it’s because I was destined to betray.

And He

destined to save.
