Jesus Our Everything: Week 3, Day 2

Question of the Day: What or Who is the anchor for our soul?

Today’s Scripture: Hebrews 6:13-20 (S.O.A.P. Hebrews 6:19-20)

God’s Promises Bring Hope

For example, there was God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in his own name, saying:

14 “I will certainly bless you,
    and I will multiply your descendants beyond number.”[a]

15 Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.

16 Now when people take an oath, they call on someone greater than themselves to hold them to it. And without any question that oath is binding. 17 God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind. 18 So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. 19 This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. 20 Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Our hope is in God and anchored in God, and is in a holier, greater place. God wants us to be encouraged and hold on to the hope he has sworn (oath) will be ours. We must remember just how much Christ suffered for our hope.
Our anchor is the finished and purchased work of Jesus, our High Priest. Our hope in Christ is anchored to the Word of God, which contains His will and His purposes. From this we have certainty and promise to keep us from being shoved around by the trials of life.
The Bible is God’s unalterable oath.
