When planning your wedding, you’re no doubt looking for ways to incorporate your faith into the festivities. One of the best ways is to include Bible verses during the ceremony.
Select Bible verses that help you focus on what’s important when you’re getting ready for the ceremony. As beautiful as your wedding will be, it will only live in your memory for so long. But practicing what you learned from the Bible during your time together will last much longer.
Check out the list below for 10 Bible verses for a wedding ceremony.
“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” – Romans 12:10
This verse will convey your degree of dedication and investment to your companion. When we put others before ourselves, we are not acting from a position of weakness but rather from a place of strength derived from the knowledge that we are valuable, wanted, and distinct members of God’s family.
“I hold you in my heart, for we have shared together God’s blessings.” – Philippians 1:7
Those who take part in the sacrament of marriage have a connection not only with their spouses but also with the Creator of the universe. Everything around us is a miracle because of what He has done.
“I have found the one whom my soul loves.” – Song of Solomon 3:4
When it comes to Christian weddings, the expression “I have discovered the one my soul loves” is popular. It may refer to any form of all-encompassing, passionate love between two individuals. It relates to the intimate connection that may be formed via engagement and marriage, and it provides an emotional depiction of what love might be like.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” – John 15:12
It sounds so simple—love each other. But it’s not always easy. And when you’re getting married, it can be really easy to get wrapped up in the details—the guest list, the seating chart, the flowers, but all that stuff means nothing if you forget to love each other through it all. So on this big day—one of the first days of your new life together—remember to love each other more than anything else.
“No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” – 1 John 4:12
This verse expresses the significance of what it means to love someone. This verse is powerful because it demonstrates how loving others can be an important part of our personal relationship with God. The Bible also has many verses about marriage, so you’ll find something in the Bible that speaks to your heart no matter what type of wedding you are planning. For both the individual who is receiving the love and the person who is expressing it!
“Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.” – Proverbs 10:12
Even in the most difficult of circumstances, turning to one another — rather than away — will help us to overcome any challenge. Lean on one another for support.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.” – Romans 12:9
Just a wonderful reminder that love cannot be wasted and that you must not allow hatred and evil to infiltrate your heart and thoughts. Keep hold of the positive aspects of your life.
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” – 1 Peter 4:8
Nobody, including you and your spouse, will ever be flawless, and your marriage is no exception. The things that will help you get there are respect, forgiveness, and compromise. These things will help both of you go back to a position of love.
“So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” – Matthew 19:6
The connection of marriage pulls two hearts together in ways that are difficult to comprehend. Even when we are at our most vulnerable, we may draw strength from one another.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love being more than a sensation is revealed through the Bible. Reading this passage of Scripture during your wedding functions as a kind of pledge to your companion.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. The biblical concept of marriage is that it should last until the death of one of the spouses or both. In summary, the marital tie should be the most powerful of all relationships.
By using Bible verses, you’re sharing your vision for a shared life together with your beloved.
Ultimately, the Bible offers us a framework for a happy and healthy marriage. As you read each verse, think about it in the context of your wedding. What does the verse mean to you? How will it help you celebrate your love for one another?
