I believe it was Martin Luther that said something to the effect that the Law is the mirror with which we see that we need Christ. (If you are a more astute theologian than me, let me know his exact quote or if it was someone else!)
Jesus came to abolish the law. We now live in an age of grace. We are to show others the love that Jesus showed to us. As we look this week about our king, Jesus, let us be reminded that we are not subject to the law but subject to the king, who died to take away our sins!
