Hope is an Anchor
October 1, 2019
Hebrews 6:19 - 20a states, "This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us." Last month we established our need for Jesus, our anchor! The question I want to answer this month, is to what are we anchored? The imagery used here by the author of Hebrews is that of a ship entering into a harbor where it can securely drop anchor. Our harbor is "God's inner sanctuary." Jesus has already gone in there. Jesus secures our anchor there. Our hope is strong and trustworthy because we aren't hoping in a theory. We aren't hoping in a religious system. We aren't hoping in doing enough, being enough, giving enough in order to prove ourselves acceptable to God. No! Our hope is in the salvation Jesus secured for us (John 3:16, Romans 10:9).
