comment What are “works of the law”?
However, one who has faith must not take their liberty in Christ as an excuse to sin. God forbid that we should sin that grace abound! And "taken in trespass" does not mean "feels the need to use the Law to come to peace." It means falls into sin, i.e. disobeys the Law.

comment What are “works of the law”?
-1 because this draws an unneeded distinction between law and faith. The two work together (see James 1:1 through 5:20). Paul also speaks highly of the Law and follows it. While he refuses Titus to be circumcised, he insists that Timothy be (Acts 16:3). This is because Titus was a gentile while Timothy was an uncircumcised Jew whom other Jews would consider an apostate. Paul, along with the Jerusalem Council, refused to make circumcision a requirement for salvation, but they recognized that the Law did good things in people. One who follows the Law in faith will not do those things.
