Read the complete write-up here: http://streamglobe.org/grace-law/

Romans 8:3-4 (NLT)
For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, In order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

The key to understanding how grace and the law relates is simple: the law cannot be fulfilled by being under the law. It is fulfilled and surpassed, by being under grace.

The 613 laws of Moses contain the greatest commandments "Love the Lord your God with all your heart", and "Love your neighbor as yourself", but until Christ came, 611 other laws had to be used to explain those 2, because there was NO real CAPACITY TO LOVE God, generally speaking.

But when the Son of God came and renewed our hearts, we understood that on those 2 laws hang not only all the 613 laws, but also the prophets. He put in our hearts the capacity to love with the love of God.

It is by this capacity to love that grace delivers from being under the law, sets aside all the extra laws used to explain the intent of the law, sets aside that righteousness which comes by keeping the law; but powerfully upholds the law, by fulfilling it in us.

That is, the righteousness of faith (that righteousness which is by faith in Jesus Christ) fully satisfies the righteous requirements of the law and makes it unnecessary to try to attain to those requirements by keeping the law through your own effort.

Galatians 3:23-25
23.Until faith in Christ was shown to us as the way of becoming right with God, we were guarded by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until we could put our faith in the coming Savior.
24.Let me put it another way. The law was our guardian and teacher to lead us until Christ came. So now, through faith in Christ, we are made right with God.
25.But now that faith in Christ has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.

Romans 3:28,31
28.So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.
31.Well then, if we emphasize faith, does this mean that we can forget about the law? Of course not! In fact, only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law.
