Commandment's Replacement

[T]he righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above: ... But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;" - Romans 10:6,8
Those in covenant with Christ have a unique perspective on Old Testament law.

That renewed rabbi and Pharisee, apostle Paul, here quotes an Old Testament scripture, Deuteronomy 10:6-8, written originally about God's Commandments. But instead of the commandment he uses the term, "Christ" (check it out)!

Our law and "commandment" is now the person of Christ, living wholly and holy unto him in the power of the Holy Spirit, and free from condemnation.
