confession: the gift of the Word

God of the ages,
you gift us with your Word,
written in the Bible and lived out in Jesus Christ.
Yet we ignore this gift.
We pretend that it doesn’t make sense in our world.
We read it without trusting you to open it to our understanding.
We act as if your word is always the same,
when it is in fact you who does not change.
Forgive us, O God.
Help us to hear your eternal Word anew in our hearts and our lives,
and show us how to live it out in our world, now and always.

Inspired by a reading of Nehemiah 8:1-10.
