|Ephesians 2:18-22 |
18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
19 Now therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and belong to the household of God.
20 You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone;
21 In whom the whole building is joined together, and it grows to a holy temple in the Lord.
22 In whom you also are built together for a dwelling place for God7 through the Spirit.
7 In whom you also are built together for a dwelling place for God through the Spirit. That is God's desire, to dwell in his people, to dwell in the Body of Christ.
You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Pet 2:5.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:16.
God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people. 2 Cor 6:16
The tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God. Rev 21:3.
And what kind of person do you think God is going to dwell in his fullness? Do you think he wishes to dwell with people who still lie, get angry, lust for things, lust for people, are envious, greedy, hate, etc.; or do you think he will only dwell in a purified heart, a purified soul, a person of peace, holy in their conduct? Christ is holy, harmless, undefiled and separate from sinners. Heb 7:26. Do you think he will defile himself by joining in a marriage to defiled people?
