Our Anchor

Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

An anchor is a device that holds a ship in place – to keep it from drifting away. Waves and currents may come and the ship may drift off a little ways from its original position – but if it drifts too far, that anchor tugs on it and keeps it from drifting too far away.

We, as children of God, have an anchor of the soul. We may drift off a little ways into sin but our anchor holds. God will not let us drift off too far – he will keep us close.

No matter how hard the winds and waves are, our anchor is sure and stedfast. Praise God!
