keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me. redeem me from one man’s oppression, that i may keep your precepts. [psalm 119: 133-134]
for as by the one man’s disobedience the many will were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous [romans 5:19]
if disobedience = sin’s dominion over you, then obedience = freedom and redemption through submission to God
how is a lack of submission to God giving sin dominion over your life currently and/or collectively? what lifestyle patterns jump out to you as you think about your active submission to false gods, idols and comforts?
God wants us to draw closer to him – to abide in him. no matter how big or small, what step can you take to obey God’s precepts today?
