1 Corinthians 3:16 (King James Version)

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

A. The believers corporately are the temple of GOD

"Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God’s temple (His sanctuary),"

1 Corinthians 9:13 (Amplified Bible)

Do you not know that those men who are employed in the services of the temple get their food from the temple? And that those who tend the altar share with the altar [in the offerings brought]?

Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

1 Corinthians 6:9 (Amplified Bible)

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality,

1 Corinthians 6:16 (Amplified Bible)

Or do you not know and realize that when a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? The two, it is written, shall become one flesh.

I love the believer's gathering every Sunday worship services, every dawnwatch (prayer meetings), every practices on Saturdays and every Midweek services on Wednesday. I love to be with the people of the same faith, hope, love and conviction of the HOLY SPIRIT.

LET LOVE for your fellow believers continue and be a fixed practice with you [never let it fail].

1 Peter 2:17 (Amplified Bible)

Show respect for all men [treat them honorably]. Love the brotherhood (the Christian fraternity of which Christ is the Head). Reverence God. Honor the emperor.
