Salvation to the uttermost
“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”
Suggested Further Reading:
It is pleasant to look back to Calvary’s hill, and to behold that bleeding form expiring on the tree; it is sweet, amazingly sweet,
to pry with eyes of love between those thick olives,
and hear the groanings of the Man who sweat great drops of blood.
Sinner, if you ask me how Christ can save you, I tell you this—he can save you, because he did not save himself; he can save you, because he took your guilt and endured your punishment.
There is no way of salvation apart from the satisfaction of divine justice. Either the sinner must die, or else someone must die for him.
Sinner, Christ can save you, because, if you come to God by him, then he died for you. God has a debt against us, and he never remits that debt; he will have it paid.
Christ pays it, and then the poor sinner goes free.
And we are told another reason why he is able to save:
not only because he died,
but because he lives to make intercession for us.
That Man who once died on the cross is alive; that Jesus who was buried in the tomb is alive. If you ask me what he is doing,
I bid you listen. Listen, if you have ears!
Did you not hear him, poor penitent sinner?
Did you not hear his voice, sweeter than harpers playing on their harps?
Did you not hear a charming voice?
Listen! What did it say? “O my Father! Forgive…….!”
Why, he mentioned your own name!
“O my Father, forgive him; he knew not what he did.
It is true he sinned against light, and knowledge, and warnings; sinned willfully and woefully; but, Father, forgive him!” Penitent, if you can listen, you will hear him praying for you.
And that is why he is able to save.
How often do you stop and think what Christ is doing for you right now, if you are a Christian (1 John 2:1)?
Sermon no. 84
8 June (1856)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty,
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus,
who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free,
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
not only to live on this earth,
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
