A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

God desires to abide with those whom he has loved with an everlasting love; and we do not wonder that it should be so, for we also desire the company of our beloved ones. It is a double marvel, that the Lord should choose and desire such poor creatures as we are: the indwelling of the Holy Ghost in believers is a wonder of grace parallel to the incarnation of the Son of God. God in the church is the wonder of heaven, the miracle of eternity, the glory of infinite love.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, The Treasury of David, Volume 3, Part 2, Psalm 132:13 (Hendrickson Publishers, p. 150)

What are the implications of this idea of God indwelling us? How should it affect how we live?
