OUR ANCHOR OF LOVE
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 (King James Version)
When God opened His heart of compassion to us and gave us His Son to die for our sins, He gave us an anchor of unconditional love. Not only is Jesus unconditional love, He is also our anchor of love. When the storms of life come against us and we start to go under for the last time, if we will hold tight to Jesus we will never sink.
Henry Lake Gilmour, who directed the choir at the Pitman Grove Camp meeting for four decades, wrote a beautiful inspiring song “The Haven of Rest”. These words are so true “I’ve anchored my soul in the “Haven of Rest,” I’ll sail the wide seas no more; The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep, In Jesus I’m safe evermore.”
Do you have this anchor of love in your heart? You can’t make it through this life by yourself. You need Jesus. Your family and friends can’t save your soul and they can’t save you from the attacks of satan. If you have never invited Jesus into your heart, I urge you to do it right now before it is too late!
Heavenly Father, You are a loving compassionate Father. Thank You for loving us so much that You gave us our anchor of love, Your beloved Son. We love You and we appreciate all that You do for us. Jesus, thank You for being our anchor of love in the midst of a world that is filled with violence and chaos. Amen.
