The Function of God's Law
Subject: "It is the ordinary method of the Spirit of God to convict sinners by the Law."
Key Scripture: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. ~Hebrews 4:12
"It is the ordinary method of the Spirit of God to convict sinners by the Law. It is this which, being set home on the conscience, generally breaketh the rocks in pieces. It is more especially this part of the Word of God which is quick and powerful, full of life and energy and sharper than any two-edged sword." ~John Wesley
"The Law cuts into the core of the evil, it reveals the seat of the malady, and informs us that the leprosy lies deep within." ~Charles Spurgeon
