Romans 7:4-6 —
The apostle Peter admits Paul’s writings sometimes contain things that are hard to understand. Knowing why we follow some parts of the Old Testament law and not others is one of those times.
Peter warns Christians to not ignore the deep end of God’s Word. There are always those eager to distort what Scripture says.
In Romans 7, Paul explains that the law points to a Law-Maker. The law serves the Maker’s purpose. Understanding this relationship helps Christians use the law lawfully and live in God’s grace.
