I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day” (2 Timothy 1:12).

Regarding your standing before the Father, is your confidence in your religious performance or in what Jesus has accomplished on your behalf?  In other words, does salvation reside in you or in Christ?  The word “entrusted” is a banking term.  It means to make a deposit for safe-keeping.  As we would confidently deposit our paycheck into a bank, with all the more confidence we deposit our life with the One we know can keep it secure.
