God's Temple

"Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple."
-1 Corinthians 3:16-17

The "you" in these verses is plural. From the surrounding context it is plain that the church is the temple, just as it is also taught in Ephesians 2:19-22 and elsewhere. Don't mess with God's temple. He destroys the enemies of His church. God dwells among His people not only individually, but also corporately. I count it a high honor to fellowship with God in His temple tomorrow.

I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
-Psalm 122:1
