In our series on being anchored we have been using the metaphor of rock climbing to help us understand that having an anchor actually allows us to go higher than we could go on our own. Just as a rock climber will use a carabiner to secure to an anchor, as Christians we must be secured to our anchor… Jesus Christ. When we are secured to Him, we find out that God wants us to go to another level… not a level of fame, not a level of prosperity, and not another level of social status. The next level he wants us to rise to, is with our vocabulary! We live in a world that has lost the value of words. Yet, Paul teaches us, in order for us to go to another level in Christ our vocabulary must change. In order for our vocabulary to change, we must be anchored in Christ. This message will not only show us the value of a new vocabulary, but how to allow the Holy Spirit to transform our words into words that produce life and not death.
