CCXLV. The Old Old Story.

HEB. vii. 25. “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.”

I. THE ground of the comfort here offered to every sinner
that comes to Christ; namely, that Jesus Christ ever liveth
to make intercession for sinners that come unto God by
Him.

He is a living Saviour. He abideth for ever.
He dies no more, but He never ceases to plead.
He is a living, a sympathising, and an active Saviour.
II. To whom is this comfort given? Them that come
unto God by Him.
Some do not come to God at all. But all who come by
Him, no matter what they are, or may have been, may
obtain salvation.
We come to God by repentance and prayer, but the
saving way is by faith.
III. Inquire more particularly into the comfort there is
in the text. “To the uttermost.” What does that mean?
1. The uttermost of human sins, whatever that utter-
most sin may be.
2. The uttermost of despair.
3. The uttermost of evil habit.
4. The uttermost of temptation.
5. The uttermost of time.
C.H. Spurgeon
