Two Ways of Dying
A Sermon on John 8:21-24
So he said to them again, “I am going away, and you will seek me, and you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.” So the Jews said, “Will he kill himself, since he says, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come’?” He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.” (ESV)
'I go my way; and ye shall seek me and shall die in your sins ...'; The reactions to Christ's statement; not wanting to think about death; only two ways of dying; dying in sin; dying in the Lord; 'For to me ... to die is gain.'
