The Present Utility of God’s Law

All too many Christians think that the law of God no longer has a place in the life of believers.  But I John 3:4 plainly states that the law is our measuring stick for identifying sin.  Without it, we have no final standard of sin and righteousness.  Though no man can be saved by obedience to the law, nevertheless the justified and born again Christian will seek to live in obedience to God’s law, even as a good child attempts to follow the rule of its father.
