Nehemiah 13:1-22 Our faithful God, You are patient and long-suffering. Your holiness is consistent; ours is inconsistent. You know us inside and out, better than we know ourselves. And while You demand our obedience, You anticipate our sin. Forgive us for our cycles of obedience and rebellion, zeal and apathy, humility and pride. Thank You for Your provision for our sin. Thank You for Your mercy and grace in Jesus Christ our Savior. Because the Son has made us free from sin, we are free indeed. Amen.
