Wesley's Notes for Galatians 2:19
2:19 For I through the law - Applied by the Spirit to my heart, and deeply convincing me of my utter sinfulness and helplessness. Am dead to the law - To all hope of justification from it. That I may live to God - Not continue in sin. For this very end am I, in this sense, freed from the law, that I may be freed from sin.

Ga 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law. Compare and see notes on Ro 7:4-6 Col 2:20. When the knowledge of Christ came, and he saw his faulty obedience to the law, he realized that he was dead in sin, slain by the law. That I might live unto God. But having died, he was freed from the law, when he became a new creature in Christ.
