Sermon: “Don’t Shrink Back!” from Dan Mitchum

Dan Mitchum - May 1, 2022

An Anchor for Our Souls

Many early Christians were buried in the catacombs in Rome, those tunnels under the ancient city. Three common symbols of faith appear on their tombs: the dove, the fish, and the anchor. The dove symbolizes the Holy Spirit. The letters of the Greek word for “fish,” ichthus, stand for the words “Jesus Christ, God's Son, Savior.” The anchor came from the idea that as Christians were going through difficult, insecure times, their hope anchored their souls. Where did they get that idea? From Hebrews 6:13-20—one of the passages we’ll study tomorrow. Jesus was, is, and will forever be the Anchor of our souls!

Scripture References: Hebrews 6:13-20, Hebrews 7:25-28

From Series: "Hebrews: JESUS IS GREATER"

The overall message of Hebrews is JESUS IS GREATER. Greater than what? Jesus is greater than everything! The early Christians needed to be reminded of the supremacy of Christ over all people and things.
