God’s Word My Hope Secures – May 2, 2021

Scripture: Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10

The reading of the Torah brought tears as the people recognized the ways they had not lived up to their covenant with God. But Nehemiah sends them home to reflect, and to trust in God’s grace, and to celebrate the hope secured by the reading of God’s word. How we understand God’s word continues to evolve even today, and opening our hearts to hearing it  in new ways brings us hope as well.
