I think that a lot of us can relate to severe storms in life. Maybe you’ve even experienced the kind of storms where you either forget to eat, or you’re so distraught that you can’t stomach food. I’ve had a few of those situations in my life. It’s easy to lose hope when everything seems stacked against you. When the experts have given up. When all you’ve experienced is loss after loss. We can have situations where we experience so much failure it’s hard to even imagine victory. Maybe you’ve also had storms so severe that you’ve been tempted to give up. Where do you find hope in moments that are hopeless?
Paul has experienced moments like those, including an actual storm at sea that lasted several weeks and eventually resulted in a shipwreck. Which is what makes his statement in Hebrews 6 so interesting.
Hebrews 6:19-20 (NASB) This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
As we unpack this passage we see that we too, can have a hope that is an anchor for our soul. You can view the message by clicking on the link below.
