We Need Fresh Revelation Accomplished Only by the Law

We need the Law to freshly reveal to us that we are worse off than we think we are.  We need to be reminded that there is something to be pardoned even in our best works and proudest achievements.

But then, once we are crushed by the Law, we need to be reminded that “there is a fountain fill’d with blood drawn from Immanuel’s veins, and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains” (W. Cowper).
