Bible: Galatians 3:21-24

3:21 Is the law therefore opposed to the promises of God? 1  Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. 2  3:22 But the scripture imprisoned 3  everything and everyone 4  under sin so that the promise could be given – because of the faithfulness 5  of Jesus Christ – to those who believe.

Sons of God Are Heirs of Promise

3:23 Now before faith 6  came we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners 7  until the coming faith would be revealed. 3:24 Thus the law had become our guardian 8  until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous 9  by faith.
