For Christians like myself, the Bible contains affirmations of a wonderful life from God. The written word serves as a guide to live purposefully; among them is to live in love. That’s why marriage is so special. It binds two people in love with God at the center. When you’re having a church service for your ceremony, choosing which verses to use is a significant task. To help you prepare, we listed down seven Bible verses that you can use be it in the readings, in your vows to give an in-depth declaration of your lifelong commitment, or incorporated in how you decorate your aisle. Plus, you can even hold on to these even after your wedding. A notable move for a significant moment indeed. See which of these verses resonate with you the most!
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Message: Love is the only key to the truth and freedom. It is the only key for a pair to relish life.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.
Message: Love transforms two individuals into one, for love is about giving your all to your partner, and your partner to you. And if that successfully transforms a match, no one can separate them.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Message: To truly love your partner, you must learn to forgive infinitely. And to forgive, you must remain faithful and selfless towards one another.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Message: In the moment that you are to marry someone, the love you have for your better half must be greater than your pride.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.
Message: Protect your marriage and your partner, for you swore not only to your spouse and to their family, but to the One who gave you His gift of love.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Message: In order to truly forgive your partner, you must love them deeply, for love prevails. To see what is wonderful inside a marriage, you must see through the lens of love.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
Message: Love is expressed the way Christ loves, and this entails mutual effort and altruistic acts that are constantly lived by.
