We examine the wonderful position into which we have been brought through our relationship with Christ. We have been set free from the Law so that we are no longer bound to it in a covenant of works, needing to keep it perfectly to be saved. Rather, we have been united in marriage to Christ and in everything that is His we now share communally.
In applying this glorious truth, we see that God put us into this position so that we may bear fruit for life - doing the good works He prepared in advance for us to do - not to earn salvation, but to glorify Him.
Unbelievers are still bound to the Law and it is killing them and will condemn them. They are called to the freedom from their bondage that can only be found in Christ.
