Outstanding description of law and grace

Rusty Peterman at Believer Blog has posted a fine little treatment of law and grace, based on Rom. 7:1-6. It's a fine piece because he cuts right to the heart of the matter.

There are only two choices for human beings. Either stand in judgment on the basis of how one compares to God's moral law. Or stand in judgment on the basis of being united with Christ by faith. The former calls for flawless obedience. The latter depends of the righteousness of Christ.

Amen. I've been trying to say the same thing in my sermon series on Romans, but I don't know if I could have said it any better than Rusty has. Good job, bro.
