The Law Used Lawfully

“‘But we know that the Law is good, if a man use it lawfully’ (1Ti.1:8).  The Law is used unlawfully, when sinners rest on their imperfect obedience to it as the ground of their acceptance by God.  So, too, believers use it unlawfully, when they obey its precepts out of servile fear.  But used lawfully, the Law is good….To use the Law lawfully is to regard it as the unchanging expression of the Will of God, and therefore to “delight” in it.  To use the Law lawfully is to receive it as the corrector of our conduct.  To use the Law lawfully is to “fulfill” it in love.”
