Victory Through Rule-Keeping or Victory Through Grace?

Why did God do away with Old Testament law and institute grace? Because while the law had the power to let people know how far short they fell, it didn’t have the power to make them want to obey it. Let’s suppose you have a tendency to eat too much chocolate. You want to be ...
