10 Godly Marriage Quotes With Images
1. “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
In a world full of people who have perverted the idea of love being just a feeling that comes and goes, God’s Word tells us that love is a choice.
Good Christian men and women struggle around the world with their marriage because they don’t abide in the love of God.
Instead, they rely on their spouse to fill the void only God can supply.
Learning to love each other deeply, letting that love wash over our lives requires us to live by faith on a daily basis.
There are things every Christian should do daily, like reading the Bible and praying, in order to rely on God’s help in their marriage.
It’s only when we learn to walk in God’s love are we able to love deeply.
2. “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10
When we are devoted to one another in love, we are devoted to putting the interest of our spouse ahead of our own.
This can be difficult even inside Christian marriages where people love God and seek to please Him daily.
The beautiful thing about coming to Jesus, in that moment of salvation where we choose to lay down our life and follow Him, is that we know from that point forward God’s got our back.
Learning to lean on God, finding fulfillment and joy in Him every moment of every day is a godly habit that we must learn, but it takes time.
Devote time to ask God for help during prayer, during your time with the Lord and He will help you.
3. “My command is this: love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12
To live like Jesus and to love like Him we must become comfortable with the type of person and life that Jesus lived while here on earth.
Jesus lived to serve others, even though He was the greatest.
Jesus lived to love others.
Jesus sacrificed Himself to provide us with salvation.
When we make the choice to lay down our lives and to love others the way Christ showed love to us, we win every single time.
Our Christian spouses need us to be like Jesus towards them.
4. “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2
Here you thought you were just getting some great Christian marriage quotes and now you’re feeling conviction, aren’t you?
Believe me, I feel conviction every time I read these passages.
I encourage you to not let them persuade you into a condemnation of yourself, but instead, to encourage you to latch onto God all the more!
We need God in our lives, and especially in our marriages, and it’s only by way of the Cross do we cultivate the humility needed to go to God.
The reality is we were destined for Hell and God saved us by way of Jesus Christ dying by execution on a cross. It was His payment on the cross for our sins that has freed us.
Go to God, through Jesus, who says He is humble and gentle in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:29).
Your rested soul will bless your spouse and your family for generations to come.
5. “Do everything in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14
Not just in our marriages, but in our lives, we can find ourselves extremely busy with the mundane.
Standing in lines, grocery shopping, doing dishes, laundry, and of course, figuring out what’s for dinner.
These tasks at first glance can seem…
…meaningless when it comes to our faith
…pointless “must do’s”
or dare I even say, ‘part of life.’
While that can be true, the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 16:14 gives us as Christians a command.
We must do everything in love.
The reality is we can do everything in love when we approach it with God in mind. We must have a focus on God in order to do this, but it is possible.
Doing the dishes isn’t just doing the dishes, it becomes serving my family and honoring God.
Our spouses, our children, and everyone we come in contact with will benefit from knowing you if you can build the habit of doing everything in love.
6. “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8
This Bible verse doesn’t directly fit in with Christian marriage quotes, but I think it’s crucial for every Christian spouse that is reading through this list.
Far too often we get up and get going with our life without any pause or consideration of God’s Word.
This shouldn’t be so.
For it’s God who sustains us as Christians, and it’s God’s love that encourages us time and time again.
It’s not in our strength, but in God’s strength, that we can face the day, or at least it should be that way.
When we are humbling entrusting our day to God, asking Him for direction, our attitudes and lives with our spouses are going to be impacted.
7. “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
Transitioning between living with and being part of a family at home and then going off to create your family with your spouse can be daunting.
God knows the difficulty this brings and that’s why He gave us Scripture like this to help us understand His design and His purpose better.
Marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman.
It’s not for parents, siblings, and other people to get involved.
That doesn’t mean the wife and husband never seek advice or counsel, but it doesn’t mean there must be a cleave to one another. A union between two. This was by God’s design.
Some of the biggest struggles in marriage come down to interference with outside influences such as parents. This can be overcome when the Scripture is relied on by both spouses.
8. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” Ephesians 5:25
The right Christian attitude is important when we as Christians are interacting with our spouses.
Quoting this Bible verse to your husband in the middle of a heated argument won’t help you win anything unless you’re trying to upset him.
However, praying this Bible verse for your husband can help.
Husbands can be encouraged by the model that Jesus shows us in the Scripture for how to show love for our wives.
We don’t have to be in the dark because God tells us here exactly how to do it.
Essentially saying, “Do what I did.”
It’s through studying the Bible and examining our own lives contrasted with the life of Jesus that we, as a godly spouse can better fulfill the command in Ephesians chapter five.
9. “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:” Ecclesiastes 4:9
By God’s wonderful design for marriage, it naturally works in our favor when we do it God’s way.
Of all the Christian marriage quotes I’m sharing with you, this one deals with something we can physically see in our life.
It comes down to this truth: “Two is better than one.”
It doesn’t matter if one or two spouses are working outside of the home or if there is a spouse who is primarily in charge of housework.
In this day and age, the combinations of family roles are endless, but there is one fact that remains true through it all.
Two people working together is a lot better than one doing all the work.
This isn’t a Bible verse to take out of context and use in an argument in the hopes to motivate our spouse to do more around the house.
Instead, it’s a reminder of God’s goodness in our lives and a reminder that God designed marriage to be a working partnership between two people.
The hard part comes into the equation when we as Christian spouses realize we’re not married to a saint, but a sinner!
When we let love cover a multitude of sins (like we already talked about), we are better equipped to work together to get the job done, no matter the task.
If you’re struggling with this area in your marriage, I encourage you to first pray, and then try to sit down and talk to one another about it in a calm and respectful/loving way.
The topic of housework or working together for a shared vision can be tough stuff, even for the most devoted Christian spouses in marriage.
10. “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
We don’t see God in the physical sense of the term. It’s only through God’s love, and the evidence of it in our lives, that we can see Him.
Where God is working in our lives, we will see the love shining brightly.
Does love shine in your marriage? In your life? In your relationship with your spouse?
I hope these Christian marriage quotes inspired you.

And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:3-6
But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Malachi 2:14

14 Wife Scriptures In The Bible

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. Proverbs 31:10

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, 1 Peter 3:1-5
