Last Saturday, one of my oldest and dearest friends got married! So what better topic for this month’s Sunday Scripture post than marriage and what the Bible has to say about it?
Today’s post is fondly dedicated to newlyweds Megan & Tim. ♥
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.
~ Ephesians 4:2-3
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
~ Colossians 3:18-19
Do everything in love.
~ 1 Corinthians 16:14
Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
~ Matthew 19:4-6
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
~ Colossians 3:14
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work.
~ Ecclesiastes 4:9
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
~ 1 Peter 3:7
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
~ 1 Peter 4:8
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of Sheep, may He equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
God bless you, my friends, in this new and wonderful chapter of your life. I’m so happy to have been a part of your special day, and it was an honour to be a bridesmaid. Much love to you both. 😊
