Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:20


6:20 Glorify God with your body, and your spirit - Yield your bodies and all their members, as well as your souls and all their faculties, as instruments of righteousness to God. Devote and employ all ye have, and all ye are, entirely, unreservedly, and for ever, to his glory.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:20


1Co 6:20 Ye are bought with a price. Christ paid the price, even his blood. See PNT "1Co 7:23". Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. Hence, since both body and spirit are God's, both should be used to glorify him. The fact that we are his, purchased, parts of his spiritual temple, makes the obligation imperative to consecrate the body and spirit to his service.

    This book is amazing. It is an eye opener. It has opened my eyes to deeper life. That I am in Christ and Christ is in me (which am now a temple of God) is awesome. Who can condemn me now? You see, to condemn me is to condemn Christ who is in me. And, who does dare do that? I have been endowed with great power by God. And, I can now do all things through Christ who is now in me. I am 12 feet now.

  • Sinner Saved By Grace for verse 9
    Gods word is truth! When God created man,he said, it is not good that man should be alone. God gave him a help mate, which was a women, not a man.
  • Charliegirl for verse 9
    Be not deceived God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.Galations 6:7 The ACT itself is WICKED and PERVERSE. God never intended for two men or two women to be together sexually. If you are openly or not behaving and conducting yourself in a manner that is not pleasing to God... Better get it right. Tomorrow may be too late for you.
