WHAT LAWS?

 
 
Romans 3:20
 
"For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin." ESV
 
Laws were created to give us boundaries so that we would stay within the limits of doing right. The problem is, laws do not give us the ability or even the desire to stay within the boundaries. Actually, the law just shows us that we do not have the ability to stay within the boundaries of what is right. We can only be made right(eous) by the sacrifice Christ made. Faith in Him gives us the desire and ability to stay right, even when there are no boundaries.
 
Heavenly Father, forgive us for thinking we can follow rules on our own and then find ourselves outside Your will. Help us to draw closer to you so that the law of the Spirit will keep us where we need to be. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
