The purpose of the law has been to demonstrate our need for God and to protect us until such time as Our relationship with God can be made full. What many don’t understand about the law is that it was put in place for a rebellious people who turned away from God and we’re drowning in the natural consequences of cultivating their desires into sin, and then death. The law wasn’t given as the first option of relationship. The first option was a relationship of blessings distributed freely in Eden. Mankind rejected this and in doing so strayed away from relating to God freely. God’s law was a relational tie meant to as a life raft until he could build an ark that would be adequate to bring them back to himself. That ark is Jesus. Many Christians, however, have become so comfortable on that raft that they would rather stay there then off board into the ark. But remaining on that raft is a dangerous tactic. The law was never set up to be an ark. Christians must off board the raft to Jesus.
