Spreading the word or evangelism is vital to the growth of the civilized world. It is like a river that comes in and washes the land from pollutants and that is exactly what sin is and does. It pollutes, corrupts and destroys nations and all that dwell in them. Just as an apple is rotten at the core and it’s rottenness spreads through the insides until it is manifested unto the world so does sin start from the inside of a man’s heart and spreads unto the home in which he lives and from the home unto the town and from the town unto the state and then the country and so on. The only absolute cure for this is the spreading of righteousness through God’s word.
God’s word washes and cleanses the heart, the home, the town, the state, and the nation likewise. The book of Isaiah tells us like this:
“Come now let us reason, though your sins be like scarlet I will wash you white as snow.”
The Book of Ephesians tells us: “To present our wives without spot or wrinkle by the washing of water by the word.” It is the word of God that cleanses. We are the Bride of Christ. In Genesis chapter 6 we find the story of the flood. This is where we will start our study in this chapter.
Spreading the word is washing the land and cleansing man’s heart!
