Galatians 3:23-25 (NLT) 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. 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. But now that faith in Christ has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.

When Scholar tried to correct her friend Jane, Jane responded, " Eh! Eh! I’m no longer under the law, I'm now under grace''. Scholar had noticed that Jane’s craving for money was going out of hand, so she tried to call her notice to it, but Jane refused her warning. Jane eventually entered into a relationship with a very rich man who was a drug dealer. Although aware of this man's source of income, Jane’s love for money blinded her eyes. She became pregnant for him and felt it was okay since money was flowing her way. The man was arrested eventually tried and found guilty for murder. His property was confiscated and he sentenced to death. Jane was left with nothing as the baby mama of a disgraced murderer.

Jane returned to Scholar ashamed and full of regrets, but by the help of the Holy Spirit, she was taken through a process of recovery.

Without the law, it was impossible to judge sin. It was the law that showed how sinful sin truly is.

Romans 7:7 (NLT) Well then, am I suggesting that the law of God is evil? Of course not! The law is not sinful, but it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the law had not said, "Do not covet."

The law shows us our wretchedness and helplessness, this in turn causes us to seek help. In the Old Testament, this help came through sacrifices but in the New Testament, it has come eternally in Jesus Christ.

If a man must know the true worth of Jesus' sacrifice, he must know how lost, wretched, and helpless he is without Jesus. The law is the agency that makes this possible. It is after identifying your helplessness that you can cry out for mercy, then mercy leads you to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16) where you will meet with the one who sits on the throne, even Christ Jesus.

Go into today understanding that the law will never lose its relevance as long as there is a single soul who is unsaved or as long as sin exists.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to enjoy your mercy and grace. Please open my eyes to behold wondrous things out of your law. Amen
