Default Re: Vessels To Contain God?

I agree with UntoHim that this section in Romans is more about the Potter's right over the clay, to shape the clay vessel as He sees fit. Of course, as pointed out, many other places talk about man being a receptacle for God's Spirit, and various terms are used to express this in scripture. For instance, Ephesians 2 talks about us being His temple, a dwelling place of God in Spirit. And the church being His body, etc. Fact is, we will be filled with something and can only express what we are filled with.

Here's a link to a verse list regarding man being a vessel: 100 Verses on Man as Vessel
