The Three are One and dwell in us

THETRINITY

Now let’s see some verses of the Scripture which show us that the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit dwell in us.

The Word teaches that God the Father dwells in us

Jesus said: “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him” (John 14:23). John says: “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God” (1 John 4:15). And Paul says: “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (2 Corinthians 6:16).

The Word teaches that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, dwells in us

Jesus said: “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:4-5). Paul says to the Ephesians: “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith” (Ephesians 3:14-17). The same apostle says to the Colossians: “To whom [the saints] God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). He says to the Galatians: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20), and to the Romans: “And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Romans 8:10), and to the Corinthians: “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

The Word teaches that the Holy Spirit dwells in us (bear in mind that He is called also the Spirit of God and Spirit of His Son)

Jesus said: “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:17). Paul says to the Romans: “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9). He says to the Corinthians: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19), to the Galatians: “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father” (Galatians 4:6), and to Timothy: “That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us” (2 Timothy 1:14). James says: “Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, ‘The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously?” (James 4:5 – NKJV).

Brothers, as you can see, these verses of the Scriptures show clearly that God and Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwell in us. How can we understand all this? We can’t, at the moment we can only accept this by faith. Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His works!
