God has done something wonderful for us; He has given His Spirit to dwell in us. Why? What shall the Spirit do in us? Listen to Paul,

And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you (Romans 8.10–11). 

The Spirit resides in us, waiting for the day of the resurrection, for on that day, God will use the Spirit to raise up our mortal bodies and change them into spiritual bodies, as we also learn in First Corinthians 15.
