Is Christianity a set of rules and directives we have to follow, or is it living freely without laws but according to the grace of Christ and the promptings of the Holy Spirit? No one in the history of the world has understood and articulated the problem of Law and religion better than St. Paul, particularly in Romans and Galatians.

  Such was our affection for you that we were prepared
 
to share with you not only God ’s good news
  but even our very selves, so dear had you become to us . . .
 
[Y]ou also know how, like a father with his own children,
 
we exhorted you, encouraged you, and urged you
  to
conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of God. ...    1Thes 2:8, 10–12

No other writing in the New Testament abounds with so many names of concrete persons—friends, supporters and collaborators in the mission—than the letters of Paul. They are a unique body of writings that break away from contemporary Greco-Roman epistolary conventions by their personal touch and intimate tone,which do not, however, diminish the impact of their writer’s apostolic authority.

The very first narrative of the institution of the Eucharist in the New Testament is offered to us, not by Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, but by the Apostle Paul in his First Letter to the Corinthians:For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said,

Paul's harsh statements about “the law”(shorthand for Jewish observances) in the Letter to the Galatians are a unique response to a very particular situation Paul never meant them to be read and interpreted apart from the controversy in that local Church, much less applied across-the-board as a kind of universal proclamation.

Although it is true that we are already redeemed, to say that “Christ died for us in order that we might live” is only half the story. God has done his part in Christ, now we have to do our part, also in Christ. We need to die with him in order to live with him. The paradox of Christian salvation is that though Christ shares our death in order that we may share his life, the believer can only share that life if he/she, in turn, is willing to share Christ’s death.
