は英語から来た言葉です。“Anchor” です。






聖歌 494 『世のなみかぜに』 
世の波風に打たるる時 望みの錨主に下ろして
 嵐をよそにいよよ深く 御恵みの手に安ろう
 錨を主に下ろしし今 風も波もいかで恐れん
 世々の岩に錨下ろし 流さるることあらじ



Did you watch the Hakone Ekiden that took place on January 2nd and 3rd ? Aoyama Gakuin University won. The anchor of Aoyama Gakuin was Daiichi Kamino who is called “the god of the mountain”.

The fact that the last runner in the Ekiden is called an “anchor” is quite interesting because the anchor of a ship is like the brake of a car. The anchor slows the speed of the ship. Also, the anchor prevents the ship from drifting in the waves when there is a storm.

The word “anchor” appears in the Bible five times. Four of those passages are in chapter 27 of Acts. When the ship on which Paul was riding was tossed by the tempest, the sailors cast out the anchors so the ship would not wreck on the rocks.

The other passage in which the word “anchor” appears is a passage that greatly encourages the Christian.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast.
What is this hope that is the anchor of the soul of the Christian? According to verse 18, that hope is two things that cannot change. What are those two things that cannot change? They are God’s promise (verse 15) and God’s oath (verse 17).

In the Bible God has sworn many oaths and made many promises. According to Hebrews 6:18, God cannot lie, so God will absolutely fulfill His oaths and keep His promises.

When this hope that is based on the oaths and promises of God becomes the anchor of the soul of the Christian, he can continue to run with assurance looking forward to the victory.

Upon life’s boundless ocean where mighty billows roll,
I’ve fixed my hope in Jesus, blest anchor of my soul;
When trials fierce assail me as storms are gath’ring o’er,
I rest upon His mercy and trust Him more.
I’ve anchored in Jesus, the storms of life I’ll brave,
I’ve anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave;
I’ve anchored in Jesus, for He hath pow’r to save,
I’ve anchored to the Rock of Ages.

(I’ve Anchored in Jesus by L. E. Jones)
