Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:11


6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed - From those gross abominations; nay, and ye are inwardly sanctified; not before, but in consequence of, your being justified in the name - That is, by the merits, of the Lord Jesus, through which your sins are forgiven. And by the Spirit of our God - By whom ye are thus washed and sanctified.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:11


1Co 6:11 And such were some of you. Some of the worst classes had been converted. Ye are washed. "Were washed", as in the Revised Version. These verbs are all past tense. The rite of baptism is probably referred to. Ye are sanctified. To be sanctified is to be set apart to God. Ye are justified. That is, their sins were blotted out and they were counted righteous. Sinners as they were before, the gospel had washed, hallowed, and justified them. By the Spirit of our God. The work was consummated by the gift of the Holy Spirit (Ac 2:38).

    we are supposed to be the temple of God. after we accept Christ as our personal savior we become His temple, or dwelling place, tha Holy spirit also dwells in us and is there to teach and make the things of God clear to us. The word of God/ the bible, is written for us and the Holy spirit will help us under stand Gods word.

    in verse 19 it states that our BODIES are the Temple of the HOLY GHOST, which is in us, and we have of The Heavenly Father, which IS NOT OUR OWN.
    so then in verse 20 its reply to the verse before which is 19 saying Therefore glorify our Heavenly Father in our BODIES and in our SPIRIT which is HIS (Heavenly Father's)
    saying our bodies and spirits does not belong to us its our Heavenly Father's
