Niagara Falls Warning October 26, 2015

Niagara Falls is a city in southeastern Ontario, Canada, a port on the Niagara River opposite Niagara Falls, New York. The city overlooks the Horseshoe Falls, the crescent-shaped cataract which is 54 Metres or 177 ft. high. Before the Welland River joins the Niagara, it’s quite safe for boating. But fixed to a bridge over the river is a warning which asks “Do you have an anchor? Do you know how to use it?” The sign reminds one that even in the quietest life, there can be turbulent currents ahead. And we all need an anchor. The writer of the Book of Hebrews makes reference to those who have fled from the storms of life to the Lord for refuge, “to lay hold of the hope set before us.” Then speaking of those who have cried out to God in their trouble, and found their refuge in Jesus Christ, he says, “this hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast.” So the warning near the Niagara Falls is one for each of us to ponder- “Do you have a spiritual anchor? Do you know how to use it?”
