Floating Away or Anchored?

“So, we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard or we may drift away from it.”

The smallest rowboat and the largest aircraft carrier have this in common: if they are not tied to the dock, they will drift away. It might not happen right away, but if they are not connected to something solid, the current will eventually carry them off. Are you drifting through life, letting the current take you to parts unknown?

Someone might say, “I have inner strength. I don’t need to be tied down to an old-fashioned dock.” The problem is, no matter how big the ship is, if it is only tied to itself, it is still going to float away.

Another option might be our relationships. Do our relationships keep us from drifting away from the Truth? Without a doubt, other people can help us find meaning and purpose in life. When you tie two ships together, however, at least one of them needs to be anchored or tied to the dock. If not, they will drift away together.

The House of God is probably the best “dock” that we can tie our lives to. It is there that we find true meaning and purpose for our lives. It is there that we find the eternal Truth that will keep us from drifting aimlessly through life. It is there that we find friendships that sustain us through our toughest times. It is there that we are able to connect with the God who loves us and there we can see our lives invested in an eternal cause.

The writer to the Hebrews put it like this: “This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.”

What are some “anchors” in your life? Is there something immovable that you have connected your life with?
