Last time, the dividing line between the Law and Faith was made clear.  But if all that saves is faith, why give the Law in the first place?  Paul answers the question through the story of Abraham. Detailing the usefulness of the Law in its ability to point to the sinfulness of human hearts.  It is only after understanding the deep depravity of man, that one can appreciate the rescue provided by Jesus.  If a slave were unaware that he was a slave, was suddenly freed, would he ever really appreciate his freedom? And this freedom results in equality among all the people of God. His salvation comes to all people groups in the world.
