Wait in - and as - the Temple

“We wait for thy loving-kindness, O God, in the midst of Thy Temple” (Psalm 48:9, Geneva Bible).

“...ye are the Temple of the living God: as God hath said, ‘I will dwell among them, and walk there: and I will be their God, and they shall be My people’” (2 Corinthians 6:16).
“...through [Christ] we both have an entrance unto the Father by one Spirit. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and...
foreigners: but citizens with the Saints, and of the household of God. And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in Whom all the building coupled together, groweth unto an holy Temple in the Lord. In Whom ye also are built together to be the habitation of God by the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:19-22).
“Ye also as lively stones, be made a spiritual house, an holy Priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture, ‘Behold, I put in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect and precious, and he that believeth therein, shall not be ashamed’” (1 Peter 2:5,6).

You are that Temple, beloved Church. Wait on His covenant-love together.
