An Anchor for the Soul

Sun, May 02, 2021
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19–20 (ESV) I don't have sea legs. I seem to get seasick fairly easily. I've only gone deep sea fishing a few times, but the last time I did more feeding the fish than catching them. I guess I'll have to give up my dream of being the star of 'The Deadliest Catch'! The waves are a biblical metaphor for the nature of life. David in Psalms uses them as a picture of the unstable and dangerous ebbs of life. We seem to live in unsafe waters. The writer of the book of Hebrews has been warning us of our the danger to our souls while we navigate through. But now he says, there is an anchor. There is something that holds in the middle of the turbulence. There is something that keeps us from shifting. What is it? Who is it? Take a few minutes and read through the warning and comfort found in Hebrews 6 to prepare your heart and mind to worship with us on Sunday.
