So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God,
built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. a21
In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
in whom you also are built together spiritually b into a dwelling place for God.
