Holy Ghost Will Only Dwell in a Clean Body

Object Lesson

Take a sock ( an old one preferably one you don’t care about getting real muddy), soak the sock in mud, get it real dirty and then put it in a plastic bag. Take it to your class and during your lesson ask someone if they would mind putting on a sock (of course they haven’t seen the sock yet), someone will volunteer. Then take out the muddy sock from the bag and ask them to put it on their clean foot. Hopefully no one will want to do this. Liken this to the holy spirit not wanting to dwell in an unclean body. How can you put your foot in a dirty sock and expect it to feel ok? You can’t ask the spirit to dwell in an unclean body, it absolutely will not.
