Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


8:6 Yet to us - Christians. There is but one God - This is exclusive, not of the One Lord, as if he were an inferior deity; but only of the idols to which the One God is opposed. From whom are all things - By creation, providence, and grace. And we for him - The end of all we are, have, and do. And one Lord - Equally the object of divine worship. By whom are all things - Created, sustained, and governed. And we by him - Have access to the Father, and all spiritual blessings.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


1Co 8:6 But to us [there is but] one God. To Christians, there is but one divinity, one object of worship, the true and living God. One God, the Father, instead of the "gods many"; one Lord, Christ, instead of the "lords many" of heathenism (1Co 8:5), one God, and one Mediator between man and God (1Ti 2:5).

    5,6 helps us to see that although there are many who are viewed​ as Gods there is only one true God. That one God is Jehovah, who is the creator of everything. The creator of all things is the one who should receive our worship.

    When we read and study the Bible it deepens our appreciation for Jehovah’s endearing ways, causing us to love him even more. And when our love for God grows, his love for us intensifies.

    God is one, not three. God is the Father in creation, God is Jesus in Salvation, God is the Holy Ghost (spirit), God's name is Jesus. His name shall be called Emmanuel (God with us); His name shall be called Jesus (Jehovah, the Lord our Savior). Matt. 28:19, "... baptizing them in the NAME of ...
