But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. 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. (Hebrews 6:9-20)
Today's Morsel: One of the things I always look for when I get on board a boat is its anchor. The anchor is designed to hold the boat in place and prevent it from moving. No matter how rough the storm, waves or the wind, the anchor, if correct, will hold the boat in place. The writer of Hebrews said that we have an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil. And he said that anchor is Jesus Christ. When our souls are anchored to Christ, we aren't going anywhere. This is why you shouldn't sweat the small stuff if your soul is anchored in Him. Hell can't uproot you. Sinners can't unloose you. And church divisions can't divide you. David said "For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? " (2 Samuel 22:32). Jesus is solid and unmovable. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. When you connect to Him, He holds you in the palm of His hand and no man can pluck you out. John said, that greater is he that is within you, than he that is in the world. And Paul said that nothing shall be able to separate you from the love of God, because God is love and love is of God. Are you connected to the Rock? Jesus is the only Rock that cannot be shaken or moved.
Sing: My hope is built on nothing less, Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly, lean on Jesus name.
On Christ the Solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.
