Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 6:20

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.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 6:20

  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on 1 Corinthians 6:20
    Paul now concludes his teaching on why it matters that Christians run away from sexual immorality. His final point, begun in the previous verse, is that Christian people do not belong to themselves. We have been purchased by God. We are free in the sense that we have been freed from the law of sin and death (Galatians 3:13), but we are not free in the sense that we are now self-owned and self-determined (1 Corinthians 6:12-13).

    If we are truly in Christ, we are truly not our own. Our lives, including our bodies, belong to God. This gives Him the ultimate authority to tell us what to do and what not to do with our bodies.

    It's important to notice something about this last argument against sexual immorality. It applies only to believers. Only those in Christ have been redeemed by His blood and brought from darkness to light (1 Corinthians 1:12-13). These words are not for those who remain in darkness. Paul is not commanding those outside the church, unbelievers, to live according to God's standards for sexual morality (1 Corinthians 5:12). Their sin is still sin, but one cannot expect them to recognize it as such (1 Corinthians 2:14).

    Rather, it is those who belong to God-and not to themselves-who are commanded to glorify God with their bodies. In fact, only those in Christ have an opportunity to use their bodies to bring glory to God. In fact, that is now the purpose our bodies are designed to serve.
  • Do a good work and Glorify God in your actions as we are not our own but a creation unto Christ who paid the price that we may have Life Evermore.
  • MockingBird on 1 Corinthians 6:20
    I am no longer my own : I belong to God . I am His workmanship. I have been bought : The price that was paid for me cost God His best : That is Jesus Christ. I no longer have the right to do as I please for I must answer to my God of all. Therefore I will Glorify God in my body and in my spirit which are God 's
