Children's Message on Ephesians 5:18
Needed: pitcher of water, jar filled with dirt, empty jar, empty jar sealed with lid
HOLD UP PITCHER OF WATER. I want to fill 3 jars with water this morning.
HOLD UP SEALED JAR AND TRY TO FILL IT WITH WATER. Why isn't it working? Why can't I fill this jar? GET RESPONSES FROM CHILDREN.
HOLD UP DIRT FILLED JAR AND TRY TO FILL IT WITH WATER. Why can't I fill it with water? GET RESPONSES FROM CHILDREN.
HOLD UP EMPTY JAR AND FILL IT WITH WATER.
I cannot fill a jar that is already full.
I cannot fill a jar that is closed.
I can only fill a jar that is empty and open.
Our Bible reading this morning says, "be filled with the Spirit."
The Spirit does not fill people who are full of dirt.
The Spirit does not fill people who are closed up tight.
The Spirit fills people who are empty and open.
God wants you boys and girls, your moms and dads, to be filled. Filled with the Spirit.
