“What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.””
Romans 7:7 NIV
People often equate the Bible to a list of “thou shalt nots” designed to squash their fun. Certainly, the law—the Ten Commandments—use those words, but they actually point us to freedom! Freedom comes when we live in harmony with God. The law informs us of our sin, so that we will find our dependence in Christ because on our own we cannot keep from sin. God fully intends us to walk in communion with the Holy Spirit and in community with other believers who share a passion to live for Christ.
