DAILY DEVO...guard the deposits that God makes


When we deposit our money into a bank, we not only expect our finances to be kept safe but we expect it to make more money!

In today's Scripture reading, Paul is saying the same thing about our relationship with Christ. 

(1 Timothy 1:14) "Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you; guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit Who lives in us."

God has placed His trust in us for something far more greater than money. God has entrusted us with faith, the gospel and His plan. No doubt, He would like to see something happen with his investment.

Guarding the deposit that God has made in us goes far beyond counting the blessing; the deposit of His Word into our hearts is not something we should take lightly. Nor should it be something we keep stored up in a lockbox. 

God wants us to share our wealth of knowledge of Him with others. We should never mismanage the great deposit that Christ has made into our heart; into our lives. 

Keep the things of God safe and be faithful with everything that God gives you. In doing so you will see your riches increase.
