The Deep Rooted Deceptive Strength of the Law

O Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? Paul went on (1 Corinthians 15 v 55-56) to point out that sin is the sting of death, and we know that sin has been taken away by Christ at the cross so the sting of death has been removed for those trusting in His sacrifice. Not only that but Paul says further that the strength of sin is the law. Sin can hide in the law in the sense that those who are trusting in their own uprightness and supposed obedience to the law can deceive themselves into thinking that they are nearly sinless and thus through their own moral efforts, of which they are so secretly proud, they are acceptable to God. It is not that such ones are sinless, it is only that their sin is more subtle and deeply entrenched. Those who flagrantly break the law and steal or lie or commit adultery etc. know on some level that they are sinning. In that sense they know where they stand. But how much more insidious is it for ones to be sinful, as we all are, and think that they are upright, because their external behavior "appears" to be above reproach. How much more deceptive it is when it is in that moral appearance that one trusts instead of the Savior.
