The Spirit, Word, and Life is the Washing Water
Eph 5:26 That He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word, John 13:5 Then He poured water into the basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Rev 22:1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street.
Words of Ministry
It is easy for people, as they live or work with each other, to offend each other. Even if they do not fight, they may still offend each other unconsciously. Therefore, their spirits are down because they have become dirtied, and they need the spiritual foot washing. You need to spend time in the Lord's presence. Remain in the Lord's presence and the Lord will come to you and wash you...with the Spirit the living Word, and the inner life. It is difficult to say just when He completes this washing. Sometimes it only takes a few minutes to wash the dirt away; at other times it may take half a day. Whenever you are in need of such a washing, just open yourself up to the Lord as you spend time in His presence and allow the inner life to flow within you. Spontaneously, something living will flow, water, and wash you, and you will become clean again. Your spirit will be uplifted and your whole being will be so pleasant in the Lord's presence. This is the washing with the living water in the presence of the Lord.
