The Law as Covenant or Rule

“The law, then, may be considered either as a rule or as a covenant. Christ has freed all believers from the rigor and curse of the law considered as a covenant, but He has not freed them from obedience to the law considered as a rule; and all those scriptures that speak of the law as if it were abrogated or annulled, speak of it considered as a covenant. Those again that speak of the law as if it were still in force, take it considered as a rule.”

Ibid, p.43-44
