πŸ‘‘ The Purpose Of The Law

β€œTherefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight…” (Rom. 3:20).

It is strange that so many sincere people can so misunderstand God’s written Word as to suppose that He gave the Law β€œto help us to be good” or β€œas a rule of life.” The Law was not given to help us to be good, but rather to show us that we are sinners and need a Savior. Rom. 3:22,23 says that β€œthere is no difference, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” How foolish, then, to look to the Law for help. Though the Law provides for just trial it does not help the criminal; it condemns him. Thus the Bible teaches that the Law was given:

β€œThat every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be brought in guilty before God” (Rom. 3:19).

β€œFor by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Rom. 3:20).

β€œThe law entered that the offense might abound” (Rom. 5:20).

β€œThat sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful” (Rom. 7:13).

β€œIt was added because of transgressions” (Gal. 3:19).

This leads us to St. Paul’s great conclusion:

β€œTherefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight” (Rom. 3:20).

This makes sense, for doing a few β€œgood” things cannot right the wrongs we have done. Good is what we should do, hence we should not expect to be rewarded for it.

But, thank God, β€œChrist died for our sins” (I Cor. 15:3) and β€œby Him all who believe are justified” (Acts 13:39).

β€œTherefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Rom. 3:28).

β€œBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
