For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast.
--Ephesians 2:8, 9
And what kind of habitation pleases God? What must our natures be like before he can feel at home within us? He asks nothing but a pure heart and a single mind. He asks no rich paneling, no rugs from the Orient, no art treasures from afar. He desires but sincerity, transparency, humility, and love. He will see to the rest.
