God Dwelling in Us

CAPE ARGUS - 1939, January 30
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” (Colossians 3:16 - N.I.V.)

God dwelling in the midst of His people, imparts a character of holiness to their assembly, and it is this holiness which alone can be the basis of every affection and activity, for assuredly the character of the dwelling place takes its stamp from the occupant. Paul requests ‘that Christ may dwell in the believer richly,’ and while it is gloriously true that God indwells the believer, it is equally true that He dwells in the assembly of His people. Nothing which is unholy in principle or practice can be tolerated by God in the assembly of the saints.” – The Rev. RW Wighton, Baptist Church, Observatory.
