1Co 3:11 Remember, there is only one foundation, the one already laid: Jesus Christ.
1Co 3:12 Take particular care in picking out your building materials.(if people are the living stones that make up the walls of the temple. then is it any wonder that it is in the disrepair it is in? If the building materials are faulty then the building will be faulty. (The faulty building materials are false doctrines, bad teaching, broken lives. People not made whole. Leaders are charged with the task of rebuilding the walls of peoples lives so they in turn may build the walls of the temple of God We the church have got it backwards, we want to build the walls of the temple first. This is why the home group is so important because it is here that the stones are prepared to be placed into the temple of the Lord.)
1Pe 2:5 you also as living stones are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
I saw in a vision the people of God making up the walls of God’s temple but the temple had no roof(covering) because the Glory of God was its covering. The Glory of the Lord was not contained by the walls but was above and spilled over the walls. People were drawn to this temple and as they entered, became a part of it. This is how the church was meant to expand and grow.
