Quotes to Consider:

Dale Ralph Davis on I Samuel 10:25: "Saul is under a law governing kingship, not to destroy his kingship but to allow it to function properly. And God’s people are under [Jehovah’s] law and commandments, not to inhibit and sour the Christian life but to order it and protect it from an alien bondage ... For Christ’s people the law should no longer be dreadful curse but glad obedience—if we prize our freedom."
