You are the temple of God because the spirit of God dwells in you. Love is the mortar and Christ is the complete foundation. This illustration of the mystery is another way for us to understand the unity we have with God and each other. It is the dwelling place of the living God, a permanent residence, where we as living stones are perfectly fit together. We bring spiritual sacrifices of prayer, praise and offerings. We share together in all the ways that people live in a house.
