1 Corinthians Outline
1 Corinthians 6:11

11 And these things were some of you; but you were 1awashed, but you were 1bsanctified, but you were 1cjustified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.


111 In contrast to the washing, sanctifying, and justifying in 1 John 1:7, Heb. 10:29, and Rom. 3:24-25, the washing, sanctifying, and justifying here are not by the blood in an objective way. They are the subjective washing of regeneration as in Titus 3:5, the subjective sanctifying by the Spirit as in Rom. 15:16, and the subjective justifying in the Spirit as in this verse. All these items of God's salvation were accomplished in us in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (i.e., in the person of the Lord, in an organic union with the Lord through faith) and in the Spirit of God (i.e., in the power and realization of the Holy Spirit). First, we were washed from the sinful things; second, we were sanctified, separated unto God, transformed by God; and third, we were justified, accepted, by God.
