When law introduced to us we have this rebellious nature in us
Law in its fullness = life
Law not fulfilled = death
We can't fulfill law ourselves, we can't get there. Christ died for us.

We can't live the law perfectly.
The law was excellent.
The cross has been done; Jesus gives us life. He then gives us the Spirit.

Choose lawlessness you will become more lawless; choose Christ you will become righteous.
