We must recall that the Law was God’s gracious gift to His people, which provided a constitution for a nation in covenant with Yahweh’s guaranteed presence and opportunities for blessings. They were to be a treasure among men by living a life guided by laws that would make them grow in holiness. Thus, the law reveals to us much about the character of God and reminds us of our inherent sinfulness. We are now living, as Paul said, “not under law, but under grace” and must interpret God’s moral law through the lens of Christ’s love, living lives that strive to honour the law whilst rejoicing in Christ’s total forgiveness for when we fall short.
