Speaking for the entire body of Christ, the Apostle Paul said, But we know that the Law is good (I Timothy 1:7, 8). Jesus said, Think not that I am come to destroy the law...but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17, 18). Jesus took the Ten Commandments and summed them up in two commandments. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:30, 31). It is by the Law that we recognized we were sinners in need of a Savior Galatians 3:24; Romans 7:7). Obeying the Law does not save us, but it does reveal our faithfulness to God and our ability to keep it in Christ. It is also a great tool for sharing the Gospel with the unsaved.
