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).
