Law & Grace/Truth
You are nor under law but under grace [Rom 6:14]
For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.   [John 1:17]

Faith and Works
 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.[Eph 2:8-9 ESV]

But the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal.  Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith 
but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone. [Romans 9:31]

Law & Grace/Truth

Ministry of Condemnation & Ministry of Righteousness
For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. [2 Cor 3:9]

Law of Works and Law of faith
Romans 3:27 So do we have any reason to boast about ourselves? No reason at all. And why not? Because we are depending on the way of faith, not on what we have done in following the law. [ERV]

Letter and Spirit
 Who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. [2 Cor 3:6]

Life and Death :
 For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ jesus our Lord.[Rom 6:23]
