So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. – Galatians 3:24

The original language paints a picture of a faithful servant who is making sure that their master’s children get to school. When we move from a grace that is unmerited to a performance-based spirituality, the law is faithful to burden our souls as it brings attention to all of the areas that we fail in. This burden gets heavier upon us until we recognize the need to call out for relief – and that relief comes only from Christ. It is the cry of faith in Jesus Christ that allows us to experience the freedom that only grace can bring.
