"The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable." Isaiah 42:21. Man has been led to be separated from our heavenly Father by yielding to temptations and committing sin and breaking God's law. God can not change one jot or tittle of His perfect law of righteousness to meet humanity in its fallen condition. The only thing that God could do in accordance with His law was to send Jesus to become our substitute and surety to pay the penalty for our transgression and impart and impute His righteousness to us.
It is through repentance to God, which involves confessing that we have broken His law, and turning from the sin, and putting our faith in Jesus' power to help us overcome sin, that we are brought back to loyalty to God and obedience to His law. The life and death of Christ in behalf of sinful man were for the purpose of restoring the sinner to God's favor, through imparting to him the righteousness that would meet the claims of the law, and find acceptance with the Father.
Calvary's cross tells of the immutable and eternal character of God's law rather than abolishing it. If the law could have been abolished or changed, and the government of heaven and earth maintained, Christ need not have died. Christ came not to destroy the law or the prophets, but to fulfill them.
