You've probably heard this all before, so I'll just touch on a few things.
No. 1. In the Old AND New Testiment, the Law is refered to as GOOD.
Jesus himself said “I have not come to abolish the Law, but to fulfil it.”
The Law is good... we are bad... we need Jesus to live up to the Law... but living up to Law is not God's number one priority anyway. He wants relationship...
I won't quote the book of Romans, but it has 12 cor so chapters of detailed explanation all about the relationship between the Law, Sin and Forgiveness...
Anyway – God's number one priority is relationships. Relationship with Him, relationship with others.
To quote Jesus , To love God with all your heart, and love your neighbour as yourself, that is to obey the whole Law.
Also, a lot of what's in the Old Testiment is actually explained by the New, and often the “weird” Old Testiment bits have “spiritual” meanings for us today. As a quick example...Moses strikes a rock and water gushes out. This is explained in Hebrews as “for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” 1 Cor 10.4
Well, enough of that. Now the bit that excites me.
