J.C. Ryle on the Law

In J.C. Ryle's commentary on Luke (p. 214) he writes:
Let us settle in our minds that "the law is good if a man uses it properly" (1 Timothy 1:8). It is intended to show us God's holiness and our sinfulness, to convince us of sin and to lead us to Christ, to show us how to live after we have come to Christ, and to teach us what to follow and what to avoid. The person who uses the law this way will find a true friend for his soul. The established Christian will always say, "In my inner being I delight in God's law" (Romans 7:22)."
