The Anchor Of The Soul
Hebrews 6:17-20: Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 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: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
An anchor will keep a boat within a circular area. The boat may go anywhere within that circle. It can be turned by wind or tide or by its own power but it cannot get out of that circle. At low tide the circle may get larger but the boat is kept the same distance from the anchor. The distance is determined by the length of the chain. At high tide the circle gets smaller. A boat anchor on this earth can, of course, slip and slide some. Jesus Christ is immovable. If He is our anchor we are safe.
Psalms 34:7: The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.class=reference> John 15:6: If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
Are you anchored in Christ and safe?
