Be very sure your


anchor holds
There is a common need within all of us for someone, some “thing” upon which we can depend, a constancy that will always be there for us and will never let us down.  But this world doesn’t supply that remedy.  We’re all too weak and undependable for that big of a task.  What a tragedy for us to put so much stock and trade in the behavior of someone else to the extent that it dashes us on the rocks when they break their word.  I’ve known of some who were Christians but abandoned their faith because some minister, elder, Bible teacher, or just church members let them down – didn’t live up to their highest expectations.  Their faith rested more on the individual than on the rock of our salvation.
There is only one rock upon which you can afford to anchor your life and never have to be afraid of its being too weak to support you.  His name is Jesus.  Jesus affirmed His dependability. John 14:1 - 11 (KJV) ¹ “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. ² In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. ³ And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. ⁴And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. ⁵ Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? ⁶ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
He’s calling on each one of us to trust His promises and lean on His everlasting arm.  He affirms His total dependability.  “If it were not so, I would have told you.”  Have you ever forgotten an appointment – left someone standing – forgot to go back and pick someone up.  Jesus will  never forget His promises —  Hebrews 13:8 (KJV)   ⁸ “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”  
 There are some things that are for certain upon which we can depend.  His Word is faithful and true.
Revelation 21:5 (KJV) ⁵ “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”
Revelation 22:6 (KJV) ⁶ “And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.”
2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV) ¹² “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
