Hello, Sister. Just to be clear, we do not obey Yah’s Law because we are trying to save ourselves; we do so because we are saved by the Son, and wish to live our lives in keeping with His standard for righteousness (see Deuteronomy 6:25; Luke 1:5-6; 1 John 2:3-6). Your comment that if we miss one Law we are in danger of damnation is only true if we endeavour to keep the Law to save ourselves, without faith in Mashiyach.
However, when we understand that our justification is in the Messiah (Romans 3:30), and we strive to establish (or uphold) the Law out of love (Romans 3:31; John 14:15), our Mashiyach serves as our Advocate when we do sin (1 John 2:1).
Finally, the Law is not something that is magically imprinted on our hearts, at least not yet anyway. It is something we are to meditate on, learn and follow as we mature as believers.
