    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:14

    Guarda el buen depsito consignado a ti por el Espíritu Santo que habita en nosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 1:14

    Verse 14. That good thing] The
    everlasting Gospel, keep by the Holy Ghost; for without a continual spiritual energy man can do nothing. This indwelling Spirit will make them effectual to thy own salvation, and enable thee to preach them to the salvation of the souls of others.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. That good thing which was
    committed to thee , etc.] By which he means either his ministerial work and office, which is a good work, the dispensation of which was committed to him, and which it became him so to observe, as that the ministry might not be blamed; or else the good and excellent gifts of the Spirit, which qualified him for the discharge of that work, and which were not to be neglected, but to be stirred up, exercised, and improved, lest they should be lost, or took away; or rather the Gospel, which was committed to his trust, to preach: and this may be called a good thing, from the author of it, who is good, whence it is named the Gospel of God, and the Gospel of Christ; and from the matter of it, it consists of good things come by Christ, the High priest, and which it publishes, such as peace, pardon, righteousness, and eternal salvation by him; and from the end and use of it, it being both for the glory of God, the magnifying the riches of his grace, and the exaltation of Christ; and also is the power of God in regeneration and sanctification unto salvation to everyone that believes. And it being said to be committed to Timothy, denotes the excellency of it; that it is a treasure, as indeed it is a rich one, it contains the riches of grace, even the unsearchable riches of Christ, is more valuable than thousands of gold and silver: and that it is a trust, and requires faithfulness in ministers, who are the stewards of it; and that it is to be accounted for. Wherefore great care should be had in dispensing and keeping it: keep by the Holy Ghost . It should be kept pure and incorrupt, free from all the adulterations and mixtures of men; and safe and sound, that it be not snatched away from the churches by false teachers. And whereas the apostle knew, that neither Timothy, nor any other, were sufficient of themselves, for these things, he directs to the keeping of it by the Holy Ghost; who makes men overseers of churches, bestows gifts upon them, to fit them for their work, and leads them into all the truths of the Gospel; and under his influence and teachings, and by the assistance of his grace, are they enabled to discharge their trust, abide by the Gospel, and persevere in the ministration of it to the end. Which dwelleth in us ; in all believers, who are the temples of the Holy Ghost; and in all the churches, which are built up by him, an habitation for God; and in all the ministers of the word, to direct, instruct, support, and uphold them; and who dwells with them, and continues in them, and that for ever, ( John 14:16,17).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-14 -
    God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, or courage and resolution, to meet difficulties and dangers; the spirit of love to him, which will carry us through opposition. And the spirit of a sound mind, quietness of mind. The Holy Spirit is not the author of timid or cowardly disposition, or of slavish fears. We are likely to bear afflictions well, when we have strength and power from God to enable us to bear them. As is usual with Paul, when he mentions Chris and his redemption, he enlarges upon them; so full was he of that whic is all our salvation, and ought to be all our desire. The call of the gospel is a holy call, making holy. Salvation is of free grace. This is said to be given us before the world began, that is, in the purpose of God from all eternity; in Christ Jesus, for all the gifts that com from God to sinful man, come in and through Christ Jesus alone. And a there is so clear a prospect of eternal happiness by faith in Him, wh is the Resurrection and the Life, let us give more diligence in makin his salvation sure to our souls. Those who cleave to the gospel, nee not be ashamed, the cause will bear them out; but those who oppose it shall be ashamed. The apostle had trusted his life, his soul, an eternal interests, to the Lord Jesus. No one else could deliver an secure his soul through the trials of life and death. There is a da coming, when our souls will be inquired after. Thou hadst a sou committed to thee; how was it employed? in the service of sin, or in the service of Christ? The hope of the lowest real Christian rests of the same foundation as that of the great apostle. He also has learne the value and the danger of his soul; he also has believed in Christ and the change wrought in his soul, convinces the believer that the Lord Jesus will keep him to his heavenly kingdom. Paul exhorts Timoth to hold fast the Holy Scriptures, the substance of solid gospel trut in them. It is not enough to assent to the sound words, but we mus love them. The Christian doctrine is a trust committed to us; it is of unspeakable value in itself, and will be of unspeakable advantage to us. It is committed to us, to be preserved pure and entire, yet we mus not think to keep it by our own strength, but by the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in us; and it will not be gained by those who trust in their own hearts, and lean to their own understandings. (2Ti 1:15-18)

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. That good thing which was
    committed (thn kalhn paraqhkhn). That fair, honorable trust, good and beautiful in itself, and honorable to him who receives it. The phrase N.T.o . See on verse 12. Comp. the good warfare, 1 Tim. i. 18; teaching, 1 Tim. iv. 6; fight, 1 Tim. vi. 12; confession, 1 Tim. vi. 12.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:14 {That good thing which was
    committed unto thee} (ten kalen paraqeken). Simply, "the good deposit." {Guard} (fulaxon). As in #1Ti 6:20. God has also made an investment in Timothy (cf. verse #12). Timothy must not let that fail. {Which dwelleth in us} (tou enoikountos en hemin). It is only through the Holy Spirit that Timothy or any of us can guard God's deposit with us.
