“Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us” 2 Timothy 1:14
God has deposited many things into our lives his Spirit, his word, the teaching we have received from godly people and even our faith (Romans 12:3). We guard God’s deposit, by reinforcement—worship, reading the Bible and fellowshipping with others. These spiritual practices remind us of what God has done for us. Paul encourages Timothy to persevere and rely on what he knows to be true, not in his own strength but with God’s help.
