Washed By Your Ears

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, – Ephesians 5:26

I made an interesting when studying this Scripture.  I always thought that God washes us with the water of the word referred to the written word of God.

However, according to the Greek, word here is the transliterated rhema.  Rhema means that which is or has been uttered by the living voice, thing spoken, word.  It is the spoken word.

This can be the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to our spirits, or it can be listening to the Word of God being preached.

As we listen to God’s voice, as we sit under anointed, right teaching of the Word, we become washed, which in this case means bathing, in the Word.  While we are listening to God and the preaching of the Word, we are growing in God and in His wisdom.  Our mind, soul and emotions are being washed and being conformed to God’s Word.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?  Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin?  That He was raised from the dead?  Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins.  Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.”  If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again.  Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
