Jesus obeyed the law to death—which is where it goes.
He used the law to kill him; letting it spend every last ounce of its self-righteousness on him; turning it into a crusted thing with curling fingernails stained with grass; driven insane by every last drop of its bleached sanity; thereby killing it forever. A law’s—any law’s—most righteous command kills righteousness: for the truly righteous obeys nothing at all; which is as much to say he obeys love. He obeys unto salvation, not judgment, not condemnation. He obeys the Spirit of Righteousness. He acts right, not because he must, but because he can.
