All This Is Vain

"I am going away .... Where I am going, you cannot come."
JOHN 8:21
All This Is Vain
Therefore be on your guard against flesh and blood, against unbelief and schismatic spirits. Let everyone diligently learn to know Christ, hear the preaching of the Gospel, and accept Christ. But Christ sees few doing this, and therefore He must have these thunderclaps to crush the hearts, yes, the world and all men. All this [works and self-appointed worship] is vain, and we are doomed unless at the end God comes to our rescue and we die in faith in Christ.

From Sermons on the Gospel of John, Chapters 6-8 (Luther's Works 23:360)
