God Dwelleth in Us

The LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.” —Numbers 23:21

Charles H. SpurgeonFor God to dwell with us: what a condescending presence this is! And will God in very truth dwell among men? If the heaven of heavens cannot contain him, will he abide among his people? He will! He will! Glory be to his name! “Know ye not that your bodies are the temples of the Holy Ghost?” God dwelleth in us. Wonderful word! Who can fathom the depth of this grace? The mystery of the incarnation is equalled by the mystery of the indwelling. That God the Holy Ghost should dwell in our bodies is as extraordinary as that God the Son should inhabit that body which was born of the blessed virgin. Strange, strange is this, that the Creator should dwell in his creatures, that the Infinite should tabernacle in finite beings. Yet so it is; for he has said, “Certainly I will be with thee.”

—Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) Delivered Sunday Morning, March 4, 1883 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Vol. 29 Sermon No. 1709, “The Best War-Cry”
