1. The Law teaches us about hope. Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase “The Bible isn’t all to us but it’s all for us.” I don’t know who said that first but that saying captures the essence of Romans 15:4.
2. The Law teaches us about God’s holiness. One cannot help but be impressed with how holy God is when reading the law. One example is the specific and careful instructions God gave Moses about how the people were to prepare to meet Him Exodus 19:10-15.
3. The Law teaches us about God’s wisdom. Some of the laws, such as the laws of leprosy, made common sense. They kept the healthy people healthy. Dietary laws were also for their protection.
4. The Law teaches us no amount of effort makes us good. The Apostle Paul put it best, “Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin” Romans 7:7-8.
5. The Law teaches us how special Jesus is. Jesus kept the law, every one of the 618 commandments. He told his followers, ““Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them” Matthew 5:17.
