Yes, brother , we ARE a house...THE HOUSE OF GOD!

1 Timothy 3:15  But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest 
to behave thyself in the house of God , which is the church of the living 
God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
Hebrews 10:21  And having an high priest over the house of God;
1 Peter 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of 
God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey 
not the gospel of God?

Under the old covenant made at Sinai, the "house of God" was always a 
physical building to which the people of God had tio go in order to meet 
with God.  But under the new covenant made at Calvary, the house of God is 
always the people of God where ever they go!  No longer is it a temple made 
with hands!   God has permanently come to "meet with us" by taking up His 
residence within us!  Furthermore, He has promised NEVER TO LEAVE US OR 

Do we really realize what a high calling and privilege is ours???

Your brother in the same house!
