The Law was once our Tutor


What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made. (Galatians 3:19)

The law was added because of our transgressions. 
It was added because of our sins, the violations of the law.
The law serves to reveal our sins against God and His law.

The law serves until the Seed comes to whom the promise was made.
It is there to serve the promised children of God before Christ comes to them.

The law was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.

The law is not against the promises of God.

The law cannot give life.
The law cannot give true righteousness.

According to Scriptures, all men are confined under sin.
Only those who believe are given the promise, by faith in Jesus Christ.

But before faith came, the promised children of God are kept under guard by the law. They are kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.

The law serves as our tutor to bring us to Christ.
But the law cannot justify us.
We are only justified by faith in Jesus Christ.

Faith has come.
The children of promise are no longer under the law.
The law is no longer our tutor.
Our tutor is the Lord Jesus Christ through faith.
