“Paul concludes the letter with practical applications for transforming one’s life to Christian service, and for regulating one’s conduct in relation to his fellowman, to civil government, and to those brothers and sisters in Christ who may be spiritually weak.  The thrust of the letter is the superiority of obedient faith over futile attempts to earn salvation through strict law-keeping.  Grace is not seen as a substitute for law, but rather as a higher motivation to obey God’s laws.”
