With all the talk lately about the law of God, I thought I'd post my thoughts on it's purpose.
The Purpose of God’s Law:
1. It Points out sin
James 1:23-25 - It gives us freedom – we can know right from wrong.
Rom 3:20 - It gives us knowledge of sin.
1 John 3:4 - It defines sin.
2. The Law acts as an agent in conversion
Psalm 19:7 - The Law of the Lord is perfect for converting the soul
Galatians 3:24 - It points us to Christ
3. The Law provides true freedom
James 2:8 - Keeping God’s royal law is doing right
James 1:25 - God’s perfect law gives us freedom
