Precisely just what is the law?
Rules made because of our sin;
Since humans have such a flaw,
That gets corrupted from within.
But until the coming of the seed,
Pass through angels to the One;
Being a go-between for any deed,
Then came the birth of the Son.
The law does not belie the Word,
No way since the law gives life;
As a guide from going wayward,
And a possibility of ridding strife.
All was sin as per the Scripture,
Then undertaken by Jesus Christ;
Those with faith be given rapture,
For belief why He was sacrificed.
Before faith sin made us a slave,
Under the law we had no choice;
Since life ended lying in the grave,
But now we can eternally rejoice.

Amen Richard! The laws of God were formulated to protect and guide the born again believers, and to offer the same eternal hope to non-believers. Another great poem honoring our Lord and Savior. Bessie
