So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

Ephesians 3:17

There are two similar Greek words translated as ‘dwell’ in English bibles, but they have somewhat different meanings. One implies temporary accommodation; the other permanent residence, and it is the latter that Paul has in mind here. Christ deserves to be so much more than an occasional lodger. We want him to settle in and become a permanent resident! As the old song puts it: come in today; come in to stay; come into my heart Lord Jesus.
