Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Is the law destroyed? No. It is just that in Jesus there is a new way of fulfilling the “righteous requirement of the law” (v.4). Under the New Covenant, the Law draws our attention to our need for a Savior (see Galatians 3:23-24). Paul was very much aware of his own need of a Savior, as we see in Romans 7:24. No, the Law is not abrogated. Rather there is a new way of observing the Law—the way of faith and grace—which enables us, without fear of wrath, to observe “the righteous requirement of the law” as a way of expressing our trust in God.
