Romans 5:20–the Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased grace abounded all the more.
Why did God give us the Ten Commandments and other laws? So we would be able to see for ourselves that we fail to meet His standards of perfection by ourselves. The Law is there to convict sinners that they need a Savior. Jesus Christ died so that grace might be available for all to cover the sins the Law has revealed to us.
Father, thank You for showing me that I need You and that Your grace covers all my sins. Help me to share the message of Your grace to those who feel condemned by the Law.
