Jesus Is Our Anchor.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” – Hebrews 6:19

As followers of Christ, we must remember Who we depend upon, and Who keeps us safe and secure, despite the uncertainties of this life. “For they call themselves after the holy city, and anchor themselves upon the God of Israel; the Lord of Hosts is His name.” (Isaiah 48:2) “…This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.” (Hebrews 6:19b)

We have a solid rock on which we can stand, full of hope and assurance. “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.’ ” (2 Timothy 2:19)

Being anchored in Jeuss means having a continued faith in His provision, and a desire to pursue holiness as we week the Lord to take hold of every aspect of our lives. “…not having a righteousness of my own that comes from be law, but that which is through faith in Christ, — the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.” (Philippians 3:9)

    Our sermon today was about the dehydration of Christians and how we become dry of Jesus and begin to feel bitter and cynical. We are not even aware of how badly we need to take a drink from the Holy Spirit. For whatever reason, it is very difficult to STAY anchored in Christ. The world is just constantly getting in the way.

      Thank you for sharing! The sermon today at my church was based on Luke 4:1-13, where Jesus must resist the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil right around the same time. This ties in with what you are saying – it’s so easy to get distracted by what the world promises rather than avoiding its temptations and actively pursuing our relationship with Christ instead. I’m working on an article about that, actually. It should be up here soon!
