I appreciate this post from Monergism by John Hendryx. Grace affirms the law, but the law is powerless to sanctify us. Rather, we are sanctified by the gospel which God uses to give us the desire to obey. Following the law is the fruit of sanctification, not the cause.
The Bible tells us that the new birth is the fountain from which we both believe and obey the commandments – and this new nature granted in Christ gives us new desires which relievies the burden of obeying his commands
