A deposit is a well known and used word in our culture today. Very few of us get through a month without making deposits in the bank. We have auto-deposit accounts to save time and ease our lifestyle.

The Apostle Paul gave some great instruction to his mentor Timothy. In his challenge to this young man, he talks about the deposit that God has made in him.  There are two phenomenal verses in 2 Timothy 1:13-14. “Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.”

If you know Jesus Christ as your Savior, God by the Holy Spirit has made a deposit into you! Wow! Do you catch the enormity of this? Almighty God chose you, and Almighty God invested Himself and the gospel message in you! That makes you very special! Therefore, don’t waste your life! Guard the deposit! Live worthy of the gospel! Allow the Holy Spirit to be vibrant in you! Don’t settle for the temporal of this world, you have a far greater treasure of investment!
