The Law Came In
A Sermon on Romans 5:20-21
Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (ESV)
The function of the Law; increasing man's knowledge of sin; convicting of sin; inciting to sin; bringing men to Christ; the necessity for a law-work.
