- To Show Unbelievers their Sins “Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.” (Romans 5:20 NIV)
- To Prepare Unbelievers for Salvation “Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.”(Galatians 3:24-25 NASB)
Many don’t realize Paul was writing about how he came to the end of himself by using the law to try to live a righteous life in Romans 7:15-25. That is why he said in verse 15, “I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.” What we see in our counseling at GLI is that victory over sin for Christians increases dramatically when they live by grace instead of the Law!
