Romans 7

I found the comparison of our relationship to the law with the status of that of a "widow" to the law illuminating. I know people who are part of modern day "sects" that are going back to keeping the law in light of the verses that talk about the laws never passing away and what not. What I found interesting in this passage that it was not that "the law" died, but that WE as those made righteous in Christ, died to the law. So the law still stands, it fulfilled it's purposed (and continues to point to Jesus) but I found the first part of this chapter very illuminating as to our relationship TO that law. One of having being widowed to it when we were wed to Christ.
