We are his workmanship.
They brought great stones, costly stones, [and] hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house.–The house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe [nor] any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house.– Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.–Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God.
[Ye are] God’s building.–Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.–Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing [is] God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
