Romans 7:6-8Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the new way[a] of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law.

Sin’s Use of the Law

What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet.[b] And sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind. For apart from the law sin is dead.
