Is This Really God's House?

Acts 17:24
"The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
People many times refer to a church as the "House of God". In reality God does not live in these buildings. He resides inside each one of us who have received Him as our Lord and Savior. He takes up residence in our hearts. Sadly this picture represents many Church buildings today. Empty. In America we have more large churches than ever and fewer people attending them. Here is a poem we used to say as children but it is revised to reflect accurate Theology. We used to say this with hand motions, maybe you remember.
Here is the building
Here is the steeple
open the doors
The Church is the People
