The Purpose of the Law

The Law was given for this purpose:
to make you, being great, little;
to show that you do not have in
yourself to attain righteousness,
and for you, thus helpless,
unworthy and destitute,
to flee to grace.
– John Calvin, from his Institutes of the Christian Religion, 20: 7.9 357
