Saved to the Uttermost (Hebrews 7:25)

Consequently, He is able to save to the uttermost, those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
– Hebrews 7:25

Is that not an amazing verse? And Jesus is able, first and foremost, to save to the uttermost, like completely save those who draw near to God through him.

Hebrews 7:25 reminds us of the assurance of salvation through Christ and his continuous work on our behalf.

For all who trust in Jesus, for all who have trusted in Jesus. If you’ve never put your trust in Jesus, let this be the moment where you put your trust in Jesus. God will save you to the uttermost. God will save you from all your sins totally. And he will transform you to be like Jesus, ultimately free from sin in heaven with him for all of eternity. He is able to save you to the uttermost. So draw near to God through Jesus. Oh, for every follower of Jesus listening to this right now, hear God inviting you in Hebrews 7:25 to draw nearer to him.

I let that be your goal today to draw nearer to God through Jesus. “Since,” so that’s not here in Hebrew 7:25, “Since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Wow. Jesus lives today. He lives to do what he lives to make intercession for you, to intercede for you as you have so many different needs in your life right now. Jesus is at the right hand of the Father.

He’s alive and he’s living to make intercession for you, to provide for you, to serve you, to help you, to strengthen you, to give you peace, to give you wisdom, to give you everything you need. He lives for this. Jesus didn’t just die on a cross and rise from the grave 2,000 years ago. He lives today to intercede for you. Let this totally transform your perspective on your life today and whatever you face, whatever you’re walking through, know that Jesus is living at that moment to intercede for you, the one who he will save to the uttermost as you draw near to God.

Hebrews 7:25 teaches us about the perpetual mercy available through Christ.

Yes, Lord, help us to live in the reality of Hebrews 7:25 today. We praise you, Jesus, for your power to save us to the uttermost. And so we pray, draw us nearer to you, oh God, through Jesus today. We pray that at the end of today, we would be nearer to you than we are right now. If we’re praying this tonight, that the end of tomorrow, we would be nearer to you than we are right now.

We pray that this would be the fruit of every day in our lives. Draw us nearer to you and to help us in every moment to remember that you, Lord Jesus, are living to intercede for us. We praise you as our intercessor. Lord, we praise you as the one who lives to provide for everything we need. We need you. God, we need you. We can’t live without you. Lord, we need your peace.

We need your strength. God, we need your wisdom. We need your help. We need your hope. Lord, we need your guidance. We need your direction. We need you for everything. Every good gift comes from you. We praise you for living, to intercede, for us, to provide for us. We trust in you, your provision, your intercession for us, confident that you will save us to the utter most. Oh God, we pray for the spread of this good news through us.

Prayer for the Chepang People

Help us to share the gospel as somebody today. Bring people to know you, Jesus today, to draw near to God through you and use us, our lips, our lives, toward that end. And God, we pray for the Chepang people of India, the Chepang people of Nepal, this unreached people group. God save them to the uttermost.

We pray for salvation of the uttermost over the Chepang people of India and Nepal, for your glory as their intercessor as the one who died to purchase them for God. Draw them near to yourself, we pray, oh God, and send laborers, send workers to the Chepang people of India and Nepal until they’re reached with the gospel. We pray all this according to your Word, which we love in Hebrews 7:25. In Jesus name, amen.
