There are three things the law could not do. It could not give life, and, even supposing we got life, it does not give strength; and, another thing of deepest moment for our souls, it does not give us an object. But in Christ I find my life, my strength, and my object. “They that are after the Spirit, do mind the things of the Spirit”; they have the true object. I get in Christ an object that is sufficient to delight God Himself.
(J N Darby, Collective Writings vol. 31 p155.)
