YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL — May 27, 2011

YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL

YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL

There was a man who owned a beautiful yacht and he sailed into a port and heard that a bad storm was coming. He was concerned about his boat and he asked the old-timers what he should tie it to on land to keep it from being damaged.

The old timers advised him to not anchor to anything on land, because his yacht would be destroyed by being battered about by the storm. They advised him to keep it away from the land a ways and drop four large anchors from the boat. That way, when the wind tossed it about, it would not be as apt to be damaged.

This reminds me of what God advises us to do. Don’t anchor your beautiful soul to things of this world that are only temporary. Anchor it to the Rock (Jesus Christ) and use big anchors! 

Hebrews 6: 19-20: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Colossians 3:1-2 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  –
