. . . you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house. (1 Peter 5:5)
Sometimes the process is painful, yet God will stay with the renovation project until He is finished with us individually. But Christians are also corporately a spiritual house.

The Holy Spirit now literally dwells in the community of His people, so we are collectively the house of God.
