Every relationship will have its struggle. Relationships will have their amazing moments and unfortunately, they will have their not so amazing moments. However, with Christ centered in the relationship anything is possible.
A great practice is to read these verses together. Rely on God. Meditate on the verses. Pray together. From there, start talking to each other. Remember, if God is the center of the relationship, anything is possible.
Here’s the Bible Scriptures to help strengthen your relationship with your partner.
“There is no fear in love. But Perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because He first loved us.”
Perfect love drives out fear. Fear has to do with punishment. God says that fear is something that needs to be overcome. We should only fear the Lord. If there is any fear in a relationship, focus on this. God isn’t in the center of the relationship if there is fear involved.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”
Is the love sincere? If it is, cling to it. Don’t let it go.
“Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”
The wicked find motivation to find hate to each other. On the other hand, love is motivated by forgiveness.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Reciprocate the love. This is not something we should just do in action. But, we should do this with words too. Compliment each other. Do things for each other. Not because it’s expected, but because you truly love them.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wrong.”
When you are struggling with patience or jealousy. Meditate on this. Pray asking for God to rid you of this. Above this, pray that the relationship starts going its own way. God should guide the relationship, and pray that He does.
“Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
Do things for each other because you want to. Don’t come back later to say that they owe you for the things you have done for them. Loving them fulfils anything they have done for you.
“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
This is more for the married relationships. God has joined you together for a reason. Stop guiding the relationship on your own. Don’t be the one to separate your own relationship. Keep God focused in the relationship.
God brought you two together. That alone is an amazing thing to think of.
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.”
Let’s focus this verse on ourselves. What are we doing to ensure our partner knows we are listening? What do we do to silence ourselves when we need to, and know when to talk? What do we do to control our anger? There should be an answer to every one of these questions.
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another. As God in Christ forgave you.”
When we struggle with forgiveness, remember that God forgave us. We literally turned away from God and He still forgave us. By not forgiving, we are almost saying that we believe we are above God.
“Do everything in love.”
Love is so powerful. More powerful than you think. We always have a choice for anything we do. Make the choice to love. Not just love, but to love like Jesus. Forgive, be kind, listen, be slow to anger, etc. Don’t do it for yourself, do it because your partner deserves it.
Make sure God is the center of your life and the center of the relationship.
