Despite out best efforts, none of us is able to keep the law. What good is it then? In Romans 8, Paul explains that the Law is given to define and show us our sin, but that salvation comes through Christ alone.
2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you2 free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin,3 he condemned sin in the flesh, 4in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
