If you have ever stood by a massive naval vessel or other types of ocean-faring ships, you know the ship anchor is a critical piece of equipment to have and know how to operate. Big ships need big anchors. The writer of Hebrews speaks to the power of the spiritual anchor we each have in our lives. It’s massive and if properly used will continue anchoring our lives to God and His truth. It truly is an “anchor of the soul” (Hebrews 6:19).
