Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 6:20

_ _ bought with a price — Therefore Christ’s blood is strictly a ransom paid to God’s justice by the love of God in Christ for our redemption (Matthew 20:28; Acts 20:28; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 9:12; 1 Peter 1:18, 1 Peter 1:19; 2 Peter 2:1; Revelation 5:9). While He thus took off our obligation to punishment, He laid upon us a new obligation to obedience (1 Corinthians 7:22, 1 Corinthians 7:23). If we accept Him as our Prophet to reveal God to us, and our Priest to atone for us, we must also accept Him as our King to rule over us as wholly His, presenting every token of our fealty (Isaiah 26:13).

_ _ in your body — as “in” a temple (compare John 13:32; Romans 12:1; Philippians 1:20).

_ _ and in your spirit, which are God’s — not in the oldest manuscripts and versions, and not needed for the sense, as the context refers mainly to the “body” (1 Corinthians 6:16, 1 Corinthians 6:18, 1 Corinthians 6:19). The “spirit” is incidentally mentioned in 1 Corinthians 6:17, which perhaps gave rise to the interpolation, at first written in the Margin, afterwards inserted in the text.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 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.
