Love of the Lord’s laws (Galatians 3:23)

    I was praying with my “face to face” devotional in Galatians 3. I never saw the law in the way that it puts it. It says on day 9 p.154 : “Lord Jesus Christ, before faith in You came, confined until the faith was later revealed. So that the law has become our tutor to lead us  to You that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer in need of a tutor.”
     That is awesome. The law was our tutor! Previously I understood the law as some sort of “hold” to be broken free of, when Christ came. It was a “hold.” It was like the “hold” of a teacher on his/her students with the rules of the class room, until the students are ready and passed the class! The law was a teacher like a parent teachers you the head knowledge of the rules of things. You’re ready when you’re mature enough to understand the reasons for rules.
