That Word, Uttermost

“”Therefore He is able to save to the uttermost, those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them!” (Hebrews 7:25)

That word, uttermost includes all that can be said. Take an estimate of all our sins, all our temptations, all our difficulties, all our fears, and all our backslidings of every kind–still the word uttermost goes beyond them all. And, since He ever lives to make intercession, since He is the righteous one who is always heard, since His promises and compassions are unchangeable–He is indeed ableand willing and determined–to save us even to the uttermost!

– John Newton, The Letters of John Newton
