Galatians 3:24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
The law revealed our need for a savior. It stated the facts that I have broken the law, thus condemned me to death. Only a pardon could save me. Our works got us condemned but our faith in Christ has freed us. We no longer must try and live after a huge rule book. We look to Jesus. He sums all the law and the prophets under this, love. Live in love. If we imitate Jesus, we will be just fine. My kids, more and more, say I look and do things my dad does. I guess Im a chip off the old block. Thats how it is with us and Jesus. We dont even realize at times, but we are imitating Him.
