Rom 8:3-4

For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

NASB

Grace works in us to the end that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us. You see, all that the law was meant to accomplish in the life of the keepers was righteousness. The law was unable to accomplish this not because it was weak in itself but because human beings were unable to keep the law in its entirety due to the weakness of the flesh.

What God has now done is to give us the empowerment from inside; within our spirits to be righteous without having to follow the rules and regulations of the law even though at the end all the deeds that our inward nature will produce will not present any form of contradiction to the law, for against these(the fruit of the spirit), there is no law( see Gal 5:23)
