TOPIC: We Have an Anchor
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil. – Hebrews 6:19
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 6:13-20
Have we forgotten Jesus is our anchor? In the early eras, the anchor was a primary symbol of Christianity. You’ll see it in catacombs and as epitaphs on believers’ tombs dating back to the first century. In more recent days, our classic hymnists have written songs like: “We have an anchor that keeps the soul steadfast and sure when the billows roll,” and “In times like these you need an anchor; be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.”
Let’s get back to the imagery of Hebrews 6:19!
The hope of Jesus is our anchor, and we swing it upward to the throne where our Lord is firmly seated, risen and reigning. Our hope in Him grips the rock and steadies our soul. Having the sure hope of eternity through Jesus Christ allows us to weather the daily storms of life. Fixing our anchor in eternity allows us more stability for life each day. Be very sure your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
Troubles almost ’whelm the soul; griefs like billows o’er me roll…but in Christ I can be bold, I’ve an anchor that shall hold. – William C. Martin
