The law imprisons our minds because we can never escape it’s demands.
When we realize this, we see that the law is pointing our eyes to Christ who IS the law personified.
By faith in Him, we become free to be His very own son, resting our minds on all He has done and will do.
22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
23 Before this faith came, we were held prisoner by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.
24 So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith.
25 Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law.
26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus
