From your Pastor;

     “Husbands love your wives just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word...”     

           What does it mean to be cleansed “by the washing of water with the word”? First of all, we need to see the problem in churches today. The church is not lacking in Christ but the problem is having too much of the world in the church. The Church in God’s will is totally of Christ. Since we are the Church, then it goes without saying that all Christians have something of Christ, but also we find we have something of and within ourselves, things that are not of Christ.
Therefore we need cleansing. When you clean something you are taking away from, not adding something to.  
      So how does God cleanses us? How does God remove... from us? With His Word!!!  On one hand life touches you, but on the other hand the Word tells you. In the middle of life, God’s word will come to you at any given moment. You must be attentive, receptive and willing to listen, obey, follow and surrender to Him thru His Word. 
      Peter said to Him, “Never shall you wash my feet.”  Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, 
you have not part with me.”  Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord ,then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.”                        John 13:8-9
      Are you willing to be bathed in the glorious Word of God? Are you willing to be cleansed? Listen today as God speaks to your heart. Follow His commands.Today He sets before you; Life and Death, so choose Life, that you may live.
