Guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us,
the treasure which has been entrusted to you.
2 Timothy 1:14 New American Standard

What an awesome truth to know the Holy Spirit dwells in us. If we keep that in mind, we will think, speak and act as those in whom the Holy Spirit dwells.

What is the treasure entrusted to us? It is the Bible, the inspired Word of God. When we consider the Bible as the treasure it is, we will read it daily.

It is God’s love letter to us. How many times do you read love letters from a special person in your life? You may even carry them with you everywhere you go.

We will want to meditate on the Bible and memorize verses in that treasure that speak to our circumstances.

The last part of the verse tells us the treasure “has been entrusted to [us].” God loves us so much that he entrusts us with his Word. What are we doing with it?

Dear God, help me treasure your Word. Amen.

Application:  What will you do this week to guard the treasure?
