“Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.”- Hebrews 2:1
The author of the Epistle to the Hebrews writes about much that still happens today. He implores us to take the message of salvation to heart, to hold it, to cherish it, and never let anything take its place. However there are times in all of our lives where we let something take the place of our salvation in Jesus Christ. We backslide and neglect the message of our salvation.
This is not to say that our salvation is lost, because finished that work. There are times we anchor in a harbor other than the safe harbor of the Gospel. It may be a relationship, work, or anything else. Where are you anchored? If it isn’t in Christ you will be tossed around when that heavy storm comes. In Christ the storm will still come, but your anchor will hold. Praying daily, reading scripture, and fellowship with other believers are key elements of strengthening our anchor. Examine yourself this morning and see if your anchor has become something other than Christ. If it has exchange it for the anchor that no others can beat. Exchange it for Christ.
