Take out the bowl, set it on the table, this represents us our soul. Take the water and pour it into the bowl representing the Holy Spirit being poured into us at the time of our salvation. Show the dry sponge, it represents our heart, that has been dried up by the corruption of sin, representing man’s hardness of heart. When there is sin, when there is a hardness of heart it feels like a tightness in our chest, like the heart is hard. We feel empty and lost like this sponge is empty. Put the sponge in the water with hand squeezing it, the corruptness of sin still in our lives is squeezing our heart. Our heart is in the Holy Spirit, but it won’t take in much water or Holy Spirit because we still have some sin in our lives. Pull hand out of the water squeeze the sponge not much comes out, it is not hard anymore, a little bit of God’s love comes out of it, but there is too much sin still squeezing it off. Open hand dunk sponge in the water let it fill the pores. The more sin we eliminate from our lives, the less things we see, hear, touch, and do that competes with God the less the Holy Spirit has to compete with the more of God’s love will go into our hearts. Pull the sponge out, and say the more of God’s love that is in our hearts, the more of God’s love will pour out of us onto others. Show the sponge is completely soft. The more of the Holy Spirit in our hearts the softer more tender our heart becomes. God’s love was poured into us at the time of our salvation, just as the water was poured into the bowl. The water doesn’t leave the bowl, and neither does our salvation leave us. God’s love remains in us. But sin can creep back into our lives slowly squeezing off our heart again restricting how much of God’s love goes into our hearts, thereby restricting the amount of God’s love that oozes out of us. squeeze the sponge again and dip into the water bring it out and show not much water comes out of it if any. Dip it back in without squeezing it and say with nothing restricting the sponge water just pours out of it, just like God’s love can pour out of our hearts if we have nothing restricting it.
