May your spirit and soul and body be kept entirely blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. — 1 Thess 5:23 NET
Christ loved the church and gave himself for her, so that he may present the church to himself as glorious – not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.—We proclaim him by instructing and teaching all people with all wisdom so that we may present every person mature in Christ.
The peace of God … surpasses all understanding.—Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart, for you were in fact called as one body.
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good thing you do or say.—He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“God does not really live with humankind on the earth!” — 2 Chr 6:18 NET
“Let them make for me a sanctuary, so that I may live among them.”—“There I will meet with the Israelites, and it will be set apart as holy by my glory. I will reside among the Israelites, and I will be their God.”
You ascend on high, you have taken many captives. You receive tribute from men, including even sinful rebels. Indeed the Lord God lives there!
We are the temple of the living God, just as God said, “I will live in them and will walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”—Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you.—In whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
“Then, when my sanctuary is among them forever, the nations will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel.”
