    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:17

    Pero el que se junta con el Seor, un espíritu es.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 6:17

    Verse 17. Is one spirit.] He who is
    united to God, by faith in Christ Jesus, receives his Spirit, and becomes a partaker of the Divine nature.

    Who can change such a relationship for communion with a harlot; or for any kind of sensual gratification? He who can must be far and deeply fallen!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. He that is joined unto the Lord , etc.] As every elect person is; his whole person, soul and body, is united to the Lord Jesus Christ, to his whole person, as God-man and Mediator; even as Adam and Eve, whose marriage was a representation of the marriage between Christ and his church, were personally united, and were called by the same name; and as the whole human nature of Christ, consisting of a true body and a reasonable soul, was united to the person of the Son of God; and as appears from the influence that union with Christ has upon the redemption, sanctification, and resurrection of the body. The ground, foundation, and bond of which union is, not the Spirit on Christs part; for the Spirit being received as a spirit of regeneration, sanctification, etc. is a fruit of union to Christ, and an evidence of it; nor faith on our part, which as a grace is not ours, but the gift of God, and is a fruit of union; nor is it of an uniting nature, but is a grace of communion; and the foundation of all its acts, as seeing Christ, going to him, receiving of him, walking on in him; etc. is a previous union to Christ; but it is the everlasting and unchangeable love of Christ to them, shown in his choice of them, in his covenant with his Father on their behalf, in his engaging for them as a surety, in assuming their nature, and acting, both in time and eternity, as the representative of them, which is the bond and cement of their union, and from which there can be no separation. This union is first discovered in the effectual calling, and will be more manifest hereafter. Now he that is in this sense united to Christ, is one spirit ; for this union is a spiritual one; it is complete and perfect; near and indissoluble; by virtue and in consequence of it, Gods chosen ones come to have and enjoy the same spirit in measure, which Christ their head and Mediator has without measure: hence they have the Spirit of God, as a spirit of illumination and conversion, of faith and holiness, of adoption, and as the earnest, pledge, and seal of their future glory. And since so it is, fornication, which makes them one flesh with an harlot, ought studiously to be abstained from.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-20 - Some among the Corinthians seem to have been ready to say, All thing are
    lawful for me. This dangerous conceit St. Paul opposes. There is liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, in which we must stand fast But surely a Christian would never put himself into the power of an bodily appetite. The body is for the Lord; is to be an instrument of righteousness to holiness, therefore is never to be made an instrumen of sin. It is an honour to the body, that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead; and it will be an honour to our bodies, that they will be raised. The hope of a resurrection to glory, should keep Christian from dishonouring their bodies by fleshly lusts. And if the soul be united to Christ by faith, the whole man is become a member of his spiritual body. Other vices may be conquered in fight; that her cautioned against, only by flight. And vast multitudes are cut off by this vice in its various forms and consequences. Its effects fall no only directly upon the body, but often upon the mind. Our bodies have been redeemed from deserved condemnation and hopeless slavery by the atoning sacrifice of Christ. We are to be clean, as vessels fitted for our Master's use. Being united to Christ as one spirit, and bought with a price of unspeakable value, the believer should consider himself a wholly the Lord's, by the strongest ties. May we make it our business to the latest day and hour of our lives, to glorify God with ou bodies, and with our spirits which are his __________________________________________________________________
