Anchored in Hope: Readings From the New Testament

Anchored in Hope: Readings From the New Testament

DAY 1 OF 5

Reflect on today's reading using this question: What is the “anchor” in this passage? Why do you think the phrase “anchor of the soul” is used?

Our Anchor

Our hope in God and his promise of eternal salvation anchors and steadies us when life is difficult and disappointing (6:18). God has promised his children that his presence and love will remain both in this life and after death. This promise is unmovable and can provide spiritual support when we feel overwhelmed with hardships and losses in life.

Reflect on your story:

  • God has given us his promises to sustain us even in difficult times. How do these promises provide an anchor of hope in your life even though you may feel tossed and turned by situations around you?
