Charles Bridges: The Law & Gospel Distinction

"The law condemns, and cannot justify a sinner; the gospel justifies and cannot condemn the sinner that believes in Jesus.  

In the law, God appears in terrible threatenings of eternal death; in the gospel, he manifests himself in gracious promises of life eternal.  

The law is a sound of terror to convict sinners; the gospel is a joyful sound, ‘good tidings of great joy.’”
