End Of The Law
Romans 10:4 (KJB) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the law. The Old Testament Law cannot be accomplished by mankind on his or her own. No man can even come close to keeping God’s law. Only God can perfectly keep the law. A man will utterly fail in any attempt to regard the laws of God as its divine purpose is to point out the insufficiency of mankind.
But a man who places faith in God, rather than trusting in himself, can fulfill the spiritual purpose of the law through the presence and power of God at work in his life. Once a man understands God’s law is for uncovering his great spiritual deficiency as measured against the perfection found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, he recognizes his personal need for God.
With God, the end of the law brings perpetual perfection.
Without Him, it brings certain destruction and eternal defeat.
A man must recognize his need for the presence and power of God in fulfilling the law. A man must align in spiritual agreement with Him through faith rather than attempting to merit God’s favor by his own morality, action, and speech in an attempt to meet His law.
