It is the great promise of God’s covenant of grace with his people: “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (2 Cor. 6:16). The Father’s electing grace, the Son’s atoning sacrifice, and the Spirit’s quickening bring us into this glory – we are the dwelling place of the living God. We are his sanctuary, his living temple (1 Cor. 3:16; Eph. 2:20). Redemption in Christ is unto renewed fellowship, walking with God in this life, our glory in Christ revealed in the life to come.
