For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
(a) For Christ is the end or the goal of the law. He is the ultimate reason for the law.
(b) The law is a signpost, and like any signpost, it only has value in that it points us to a place we need to go. The law does not restrain or guide us but it points us to Jesus who is the way, truth, and the life.
