What the Gospel taught me about the Law

The gospel teaches me to tell the Law that it doesn’t have any right to try to condemn me ever again. It tells me that when I hear its voice, I can proclaim that it has already been satisfied and can’t ask for more. And it motivates me to confess my sin and love my husband because I’ve been loved and I’m no longer a slave to its demands. Jesus has done it all. He didn’t silence the Law by abolishing it. No, he silenced it by fulfilling its true meaning and answering its every demand. Thank God that he’s more than our example, he’s our righteousness.      – Elyse Fitzpatrick
