Are you one of those people who didn’t like math in high school or college? Many of us didn’t really care for subjects like calculus or algebra because we found it to be hard or boring.

I remember taking a calculus class when I was in college that made me want to shoot myself.

I dreaded going to class because not only did I not understand all the mathematical theories behind the subject, but I could hardly stay awake from how boring my teacher was (yes, I’m going to blame my teacher instead of myself, he he).

So after getting a few C’s and D’s on my calculus exams, I got depressed because it looked like I was destined to fail the class. I needed to get a C in the class so that I could avoid having to take it again.

It was one of those required classes for my major.

One day after my calculus class, I was walking across my college campus with my head down thinking about what I could do to pass my class.

I walked up to the library and I began to look at the bulletin board outside as I was trying to get my mind off of my doom and gloom problem.

All of a sudden, it looked like there might be a glimmer of hope. One of the advertisements on the board read, “Got math problems? No problem, get a tutor for free.”

“That’s it!” I said to myself. “I need to get a tutor!”

That was the answer to my problem because I knew that if I could just get some extra help from a tutor, then I had a shot at passing the class.

The Tutor that Brings People to Christ

Likewise in the Bible, God calls His Law (The Ten Commandments) a tutor in Galatians 3:24:

“Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.”

The law teaches us that we have transgressed God’s law because we learn about God’s standard for righteousness.

How do we know that we shouldn’t steal? How do we know that we shouldn’t commit adultery? How do we know that we shouldn’t lie?

It’s because God’s law says so.

God didn’t just give The 10 Commandments to the Jews and to Christians, but He also gave it to every human being.

Check out verses fourteen and fifteen from Romans chapter two. These verses are from the New Living translation which I think really help us to understand.

“Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know His law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right.”

Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Law

The important thing when witnessing to others is to never underestimate the power of God’s law. Romans 3:20 tells that the law is used to bring about the knowledge of sin.

That’s because one of your allies when witnessing to others is the human conscience.  When you tap into the conscience, the Holy Spirit will bring about conviction of sin.
