Bible Verses for Love

Love is a funny word, in that it’s defined a little differently by everyone, and changes slightly based on who we are referring to. We love our parents. And our kids. And our spouses. And our pets. But those relationships are all different, and “love” looks a little different in each case. God loves us so much that he made us in his image and sent His only Son for us. Love unites us with God and comes from Him. God loves us in ways that defy our human ability to understand. When we think of His love for us, and strive to share that loves with those around us, whether that be family members or total strangers, we help unite our hearts with God. The Bible contains many verses about love that can help us understand love, ourselves, and our God.

Let Hallow help you pray when you’re seeking Bible Verses for love.

No matter what you’re facing or what you’re feeling, God is not far from you. We draw especially close to God when we spend time reflecting on Scripture.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.”

John 15: 12

“Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”

Romans 13: 8

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her.”

Ephesians 5: 25

“Set me as a seal on your heart, as a seal on your arm; For stern as death is love, relentless as the nether world is devotion; its flames are a blazing fire. Deep waters cannot quench love, nor floods sweep it away. Were one to offer all he owns to purchase love, he would be roundly mocked.”

Song of Solomon 8: 6-7
