As Christians, it is so important that our focus on grace does not lead us to dismiss the importance of the law. God divinely inspired the law because it is good for us to live by. When the Bible says to not look upon a woman with lust it is a gift of God’s wisdom, helping us to live a better life. The law calls us to live the pure life that God made us for. Also, by dismissing the law how will we be brought to our knees in repentance? The law must be held up and preached because by it “every mouth may be stopped, and all the world is found guilty” (Romans 3:19). When you are found guilty, then you may be forgiven. Without the law there is no grace.
