“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]
I remember the sense of pride I felt years ago when as a young bride I watched my husband march in the honor guard of the United States air force. He was handsome, his uniform was smart, clean and crisp and he kept the perfect cadence required of him. But it was more than that—to be part of the honour guard meant he was a man of honour—a man of character and integrity—the years have tested, tried and proven what I saw was more than appearance it was real.
God is moving to reveal His honor guard—stripping away all that is not necessary, building character and ordering a cadence that brings a sweet harmony to match the sound from heaven. As the Body of Christ marches to His song then resistance weakens—strongholds give way and the walls built by pain crumble. As it was with Joshua and Jericho so it is now in the spiritual realm.
The ‘good deposit’ increases with use by the Holy Spirit—in the words of Zechariah, ”I’ll put muscle in the people…I know their pain and will make them good as new. They’ll get a fresh start…because I am their God. I’ll do what needs to be done for them” [Zechariah 10:5-8 The Message]
My husband marched for the honor of the U.S. military—we march now for the honor of Jesus Christ. “Never compromise with anything that would detract from the honour of the Lord. Remember that the honour of Jesus is at stake in your bodily life and rouse yourself up to act
accordingly.” [Oswald Chambers]
