Sermon Series: An Anchor for the Soul: A Study in Hebrews

About the Series

“I appeal to you, brothers, bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written to you briefly” (13:22). That’s how the author of the book of Hebrews ends his letter. While the book of Hebrews is famous for its exposition of the Old Testament in light of Christ, showing Christ to be our great high priest, all of that teaching is for an urgent exhortation: do not fall away. Or, as he put it in 2:1 , “Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.” Jesus is an anchor for our souls. He is anchored in heaven and his work is perfectly fitted to keep us in the midst of every trial and temptation.
