Psalm 119:132-134 “Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your way with those who love your name. Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me.  Redeem me from man’s oppression, that I may keep your precepts.”

In Christ we are no longer under the reign of death and sin. But we are still awaiting the coming of our Lord to give us the fullness of salvation from the effects of sin.
