Who may dwell?
LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken. (Psalm 15)
According to Exodus 29:46, it's the Lord who chooses to dwell amongst us,
According to Psalm 23:6 it's the Lords goodness and mercy that follows us and therefore allows a response from us - to choose to dwell where he's already chosen to dwell...in us and amongst us. Perhaps how we respond determines how we remain.
