Quote: John Chrysostom On The Law

chrysostom_louvre

“For our sins,” says the Apostle; we had pierced ourselves with ten thousand evils, and had deserved the gravest punishment; and the Law not only did not deliver us, but it even condemned us, making sin more manifest, without the power to release us from it, or to stay the anger of God. But the Son of God made this impossibility possible for he remitted our sins, He restored us from enmity to the condition of friends, He freely bestowed on us numberless other blessings.

John Chrysostom, Commentary of St. John Chrysostom, On the Epsitle of St. Paul to the Galatians 1:4.
