“Law. . . confirms and seals our bondage to sin. As long as law governs us there is no possibility of release from the bondage of sin. The only alternative is discharge from the law. This occurs in our union with Christ in his death, because all the virtue of Christ’s death in meeting the law becomes ours and we are free from the bondservice and power of sin to which the law had consigned us.” (John Murray, Commentary on Romans, Volume 1, page 243, NICNT).
