What is the Purpose of the Law? (Part 2)
Galatians 3:23-29

The Law was a temporary guard keeping us imprisoned until our salvation by faith (Gal 3:23)

The Law was given to point out our need for Christ so we could be justified by faith, but now that salvation by faith has come we no longer need the pointer to it (Gal 3:24-25)

By faith we become full-fledged sons (legal adults) who are free and no longer require a guardian (Gal 3:26-27)

By "putting on Christ" the worldly distinctions no longer apply - no more haves and have nots - all believers receive the inheritance (Gal 3:28)

If we belong to Christ, then we are heirs of God's rich promises given through Abraham (Gal 3:29)

The purpose of the Law was to lead us to the conclusion that the only way to be declared righteous before God was through faith in Christ's finished work on our behalf.
