495. Being filled with the Holy Spirit - an object lesson

A cool science experiment with hydrogel beads about how we as Christians can be on fire for God by being filled by the Holy Spirit. 

In Ephesians 5:18 Paul writes: “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit.” 

In this object lesson we’re going to use hydrogel beads and a hot frying pan to demonstrate to children that we as Christians can be on fire for God by asking Him to fill us with His Spirit.
