Soul’s Anchored



Camilo Buchanan opens up Hebrews 1-2, encouraging and reminding us to keep our faith anchored in Jesus, our High Priest, who is superior overall.

Key Takeaway

Jesus is our High Priest, so keep the faith.

The Book of Hebrews addresses the question, "Is this Jesus thing worth sticking with?"

In Hebrews 1:1-4, we see how the Son is superior over everything, including angels. Jesus didn't die and resurrect to be first in your life; He died to be the center of your life.

The entire Book of Hebrews can be summarized in eight words: Jesus is our high priest, so keep the faith.

What does this mean? How do I keep the faith?

We must first understand who Jesus is.

Jesus is not just a messenger; He is God. We cannot comprehend with our finite human brains all there is to know about God; He is Triune.

As stated by the theologian Francis Schaeffer, "We know God truly, but we do not know God exhaustively."

There used to be one high priest selected from the people who would make a sacrifice once a year to purify sins. We were all created to be priests, but our sins make us unable to meet the requirements.

In Hebrews 2:6-10, we see how Jesus became a human to be that Priest. He did it this way to be near to you and uses death to offer resurrection.

The old high priest would only help you after you sinned. However, Jesus is a different kind of High Priest; he offers a way out of temptation.

When we neglect our time with Jesus, we use Him to serve us. Do not keep Jesus on "do not disturb" when you have the Spirit of the Living God inside of you.

God is not the means to an end; He IS the end. Nothing is fulfilling without Him.

Faith is not a feeling; it's a muscle that grows when you work it. Keep the faith and hold on; obedience is faith.

We must pay attention so that we do not drift away. If you get off a boat to go snorkeling in the water, you will drift away even though the boat itself did not move.

Our faith is an anchor, but the anchor can't do anything while it's in the boat. We must anchor our faith down deep into the bedrock of Jesus.

Who is your faith in?

In 2 Timothy 1:9-14, we are reminded that the One whom we have believed in is steady. Keep holding on to Who is holding on to you, so that on that day you can say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7-8)


"Faith is not a feeling; faith is a muscle that grows when you work it."
