for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
– Hebrews 7:19
The law made nothing perfect. This is such an vitally important truth. We can try, with all of our energy and might, to make ourselves right and righteous by the law, but by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified before God. The law is our school master to bring us to Christ so that we might be justified by faith.
The Law is holy, just and good. But it can by no means make us holy, just or good.
