(You are part of a building that has the apostles for its foundations.)
You are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God’s household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone.
As every structure is aligned to him, all grow into one holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.
The word of the Lord.
R.) Thanks be to God.
