It is our hope that as families work together to learn the fifty-two questions and answers found in this catechism, they will increase not only in knowledge, but in the fruit of the Spirit, as they grow to love God with all of their hearts.

Romans 3:20
For by the works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

Question 12
Since no one can keep the law, what is it’s purpose?

Answer
That we may know the holy nature of God, and the sinful nature of our hearts; and thus our need of a Savior.

This week’s question helps:
A helpful message from John Piper regarding God’s law.
4 Things God’s Law does for his people. 
A readable sermon on how “we can even begin to keep God’s law” by Ligon Duncan.
