The washing of water by the word

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Ephesians 5:25-27

The washing of water by the word…

Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. John 15:3

We should never underestimate the power of the Word of God, when we read or hear it, and receive it and believe it, to be like water washing away the dirt and making us clean.

Our text says that Jesus Himself will wash His Church and make it a glorious Church, and He will do it by sending His Word, and this will sanctify and cleanse His Church.

And this is why the enemy causes people to ignore the Scriptures, or go seeking some new message, or anything but receive the washing of water by the word.

We can say that the modern trend in Christianity is for anything and everything EXCEPT the washing of water by the word, and this is why we don’t see a ...glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
