Beholding His Glory ~ Pastor Bill Slabaugh, Grace Baptist Church

Hebrews 6:17-19 ~ The Anchor Holds ~ Pastor Bill Slabaugh

April 6, 2020

 

The Anchor is the symbol of Christian hope. The anchor became a key Christian symbol during the period of Roman Persecution in the first century. The Christian singer Michael Card wrote in his album, Soul Anchor,  “The first century symbol wasn’t the cross; it was the anchor. If I’m a first century Christian and I’m hiding in the catacombs and three of my best friends have just been thrown to the lions, or burned at the stake or crucified, and set ablaze as torches at one of Nero’s garden parties, the symbol that most encourages me in my faith is the anchor. When I see it, I’m reminded that Jesus is my anchor.”
