It Is a Schoolmaster

The Law exists to extinguish any sense that we can “git ‘er done,” and the only sane response to its comprehensive demand is a cry for mercy.  The Law brings us to our knees, revealing to believers and unbelievers alike who we really are – namely, sinners in need of a savior.  It is the schoolmaster that teaches us just how much we need to receive from Jesus: Everything.
