Lets be perfectly clear, the grace message does not bash or discredit the Law. Matter of fact it puts the law in its proper place. Jesus said this in Matthew 5:17,18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law till all be fulfilled. So the law has be fulfilled in the finished work of the cross. Jesus fulfilled the requirments of the law. So once you accept Christ you have no need for the law. Romans 10:4 says “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes. So if you believe in Christ and accept His finished work, the law is no longer your guide.

See Galatians 3:24,25 says “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” and verse 26 says “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. So if you are a Christian, you are not under the law anymore.

So what is the Law for today. It is still viable! The Law will do what it is suppose to do, bring you to Christ! The Law will let you know that you can’t keep it.  The Law will point you to Christ. The Law is for unbelievers! Not for believers.

So put the Law in its proper place in your life if you are a believer. If you’re not a believer, allow the Law to lead you and point you to Jesus Christ. You will never be the same again!
