Go To The Bible Before You Jump Into Marriage!
Marriage is joining together with the one that God has chosen for you and it is a big deal. Even if you’re meant to be together, that doesn’t mean the marriage is going to be easy! When preparing for marriage, the Bible has plenty to offer in terms of guidance and advice, and the word of God can be the word you turn to when things get difficult throughout your life together. Our top 3 Bible passages we think you should remember before marriage are:
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…”This passage helps you to remember that things will get tough from time to time, and love is not a selfish thing. Most importantly, it shows that God has never intended for love to fail, and it never needs to.
- Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”Remembering to trust in the Lord, and to feel sure that He is leading you in the right path can help you to get through those marriage woes you experience throughout your life.
- Matthew 19:4-6 – “So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”When you’re married, you’re joined as one flesh, and you’re joined as one flesh that God himself has put together. It’s important to remember that as one flesh, not to separate, and to work to the unity that God has intended for you.
