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 6:18-20
Some believe the anchor was the first Christian symbol preceeding the cross. We can read some history on the subject here but the very real question for us is whether Christ is truly the anchor of our souls today? If not, have you considered why not?
