So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
The stones for Solomon's temple were cut and shaped at the quarry (1 Kings 6:7), shaped precisely to fit in the walls of the temple exactly where they were needed. I can almost hear the click as each stone slipped into its intended place in the structure. So it is with each one of us, We have been shaped and trimmed to fit precisely into a specific location in the holy temple of the LORD, God, the Almighty. There is a click, an aha, an 'I'm home' as He slides us into that place prepared for us before the beginning of time. Ref Psalm 139
