I. The Purpose of the Law -
"Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." - (Galatians 3:24)
II. The Problems of the Law
"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law..." (Galatians 2:16) "I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me." (Romans 7:21)
III. The Passing of the Law " For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." (Romans 10:4)
IV. The Principals of the Law
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law." (Romans 5:12-13)
"Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:" (Romans 5:20)
a. Under grace we have a new covenant. (Hebrews 7:22, 8:6–13; 9:15; 10:15–18, 29; 12:24; 13:20.) "After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me." (1 Corinthians 11:25)
b. Under grace we have a new commandment.
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." (John 13:34)
