September 28, 1986
When religious teachers and leaders mocked Jesus and denied His identity, Jesus warned that they would die in their sins. Today, a statement like this seems confrontational and parochial, but as Alistair Begg reminds us, we cannot know the joy of a relationship with Christ without first recognizing our sinful condition before a Holy God. The attitudes of the Pharisees show us the characteristics of those who will face condemnation, and the only qualification for salvation is our trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
21So 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.”
