Saved by grace, yet still want law

When someone is saved through Jesus Christ by grace, yet tries to add law to that what happens?

In other words if we trust completely in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross for salvation, and then add self works to maintain that work what happens?

    Jesus came not to abolish the law, but to fulfill the law. So we still have to follow the guidelines…read Galatians – I think Galatians 5 mentions that the law is like a teacher and when it is written on your hearts.

    Our works toward salvation are futile. We do works because we are saved!!!… When we are saved we will want to do these acts for Christ because we love Him and want to be obedient. If we are doing works to add to what Christ did on the cross, then we really don’t understand what He did on the cross.

    We are saved by grace and grace alone. The Law is the path for living that God has defined for us (all of us!). It was Christ who said that “I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law …”

    Salvation is one thing and that is solely by the grace of our lord. How then we are to live is another and that is through the Law.

    • Don if that is the case then how do we explain Romans 5-8; Galatians 2,5; Colossians 2, to just name a few. The law has been fulfilled in Jesus, we therefore do not need to. The law is still needed for how else would we know we need Christ?
