When it comes to marriage, the Bible has a lot to say. It covers topics such as love, commitment, and sex. Some people might be surprised by what they find when they read the Bible on this topic. Others might already be familiar with what it says and are looking for confirmation of their beliefs. No matter where you stand, it’s important to know what the Bible has to say about marriage. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most important teachings from Scripture about this topic!
Love in Marriage
Love is one of the most important aspects of marriage, and the Bible has a lot to say about it. In fact, the very first mention of love in the Bible comes from God Himself. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud” (I Corinthians 13:13). Love can also be found in various other places throughout the scripture. Another would be when Jesus tells his disciples to love their enemies as well (Matthew 22:39). Or, how Paul writes about how husbands should show affection toward their wives as Christ did with all people who believe in Him (Ephesians Chapter Five).
Commitment in Marriage
Commitment is another key component of marriage, and the Bible has a lot to say about it as well. In Malachi, God says that one of the purposes of marriage is so that man “will not be alone“. In Psalm 37:25, it is written that “the Lord will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you”. These are just a few examples of the many scriptures that talk about the importance of commitment in marriage.
Is Sex Important in Marriage?
Sex is another important topic when it comes to marriage. The Bible has something to say about it as well. For example, in the book of Proverbs it is written that “he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22) and in I Corinthians chapter seven Paul says that marriage is the only context in which sex is acceptable. These are just two examples of the many scriptures that talk about sex within the context of marriage.
