It Is a Permanent Indwelling, Not a Temporary Abode

As D. A. Carson has rightly observed, “at first sight it seems strange for Paul to pray that Christ may dwell in the hearts of believers. Did he not already live within them? Answer, it is noted that the focus of this request is not on the initial indwelling of Christ put on his continual presence. The verbiage to this prayer is a strong one, signifying a permanent indwelling rather than some temporary abode.”
