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.

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We should be constantly reminded that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Paul's gospel is God approved

    It's better to Love then to judge.
  • A disciple
    "if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" However it got started; the idea that we aren't supposed to use our brains or the discernment of God's Spirit in us to judge; is both against reality and all knowledge of the truth. How are we supposed to otherwise know whether we have a good or bad conscience toward God or toward each other, and to resist Satan?
