The Bible is full of great verses and passages about the topic of love.  God’s love for us is a perfect example and starting place to study on love. There are also great verses about love in relation to marriage, brotherly love or friendship, and loving your neighbor. Here is a collection of some of the greatest love quotes from the Bible. What is your favorite love Bible verse? Share it with us in the comments!

Featured Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

God’s Love Scriptures

There should be no talk of love in the Bible without covering God’s love for each of us. This is the love that has led to a path for eternal life. Praise God!

John 3:16  For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

1 John 3:1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Bible Verses About LoveLove One Another Bible Verses

Romans 13:8  Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Galatians 5:13  For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Ephesians 4:2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,

1 Peter 1:22  Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,

1 John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

What Did Jesus Say About Love

Matthew 5:43-48  You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,  so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.  For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?  You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Matthew 6:24-25  “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.  “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Mark 12:28-30   And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

John 14:21-24  Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”  Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” Jesus answered him,  “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.

John 15:9-17 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

Bible Verses About Love  for Marriage or Weddings

Song of Solomon 8:6-7  Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

Ephesians 4:2-3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Philippians 2:2  complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

1 John 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Love Scripture Quotes from Proverbs or Psalms

Psalm 23:5-6  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 31:16 Make your face shine on your servant;  save me in your steadfast love!

Psalm 63:3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.

Proverbs 17:17  A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Please can you tell me where in the Bible we are told to love ourselves?

Reply

Jack Wellman April 3, 2013 at 7:45 pm

Thank you Mrgarite for your question. The fact is this is in several places but it is attached to a part of a sentence, yet is still applies. Let me show you what I mean and that it is actually part of the “two greatest commands!”

Jesus said in Matt 22:36-40 after the religious rulers asked Him, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor AS YOURSELF’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” {My bolds}

If God says we are to love our neighbors “as ourselves” He means clearly that we are to love ourselves too because He loves us and so why should we not too. Not a self, ego mania, selfish love but love ourselves enough to take care of our bodies which are the temple of the Holy Spirit. This is also repeated in Mark 12:31 and even in the Old Testament in Leviticus 19:18 “You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbour as yourself: I am the Lord.”

Does this help Mrgarite?

Can you show me in the Bible where it talks about the suffering of small children. Like any reference to why they are born to suffer Cancer, etc, then die. I can’t understand why this happens. Thank you

Jack Wellman April 14, 2013 at 8:38 pm

Jane, I know this seems hard to take but when a baby or a young child dies, they are in the presence of the Lord and that is a million times better than what they will have to live thru in this world. For more on this hard question, please check out this article of ours:

I have always accepted, and disliked the answer that you gave. Lee Strobel wrote a book titled “The Case for Faith” and although I did not particularly care for the book as a whole I was struck by his chapter that I believe was titled “Why does God allow suffering”. I don’t think he told me anything new that Jack has not already clarified, but he said it in a way where I was content with the answer. I won’t do the author the dis-service of attempting to paraphrase because I don’t think that I will capture it correctly. Grab the book. Also, I have a spare copy, send me a stamp to cover the postage and I’ll give it to you.

Hello Mr. Madu. I appreciate your very generous answer sir. I actually wrote a book called “Do Babies Go to Heaven?/Why Does God Allow Suffering?” and if you give me your email I will send the eBook free. It is on Amazon too. I am certainly not able to hold a candle to Lee Strobel and if you like, my address to my church is to the church I pastor at: Mulvane Brethren Church, 310 S. Central, Mulvane, KS 67110 and if you mail the book, I will do better than the eBook on suffering…I will mail a hard copy to you free and pay you back too for postage. Whatever you say friend. Thanks and may God richly bless you sir.

Sin came in the beginning with Adam and Eve and because mankind multiplied so did the effects of sin. Sin brings about sickness. Now I am not saying children sin but they are born children of the seed of Adam. The Bible says “we all fall short of the glory of God” .We are all effected by sin and many times it shows up in sickness. The natural world produces sickness with the food we eat, water we drink and the air we breathe. Many times our parents did things that produced sickness in their bodies that was carried onto the children. Things can be inherited from generation to generation. We as Christians must stand against an enemy that “came to steal, rob and destroy”. Jesus came to destroy the works of the enemy 1st John 4:8. You speak about suffering little child The scripture you refer to is Luke 18:16 let us read it in the Living Bible. It will help you get an understanding of what it means.
16 Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 I assure you, anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith(belief) will never get into the Kingdom of God.” God is a God of love. But He is also a just God and cannot condone rebellion and that rebellion is sin and sin leads to death. We live in a rebellious and sinful world that has turned their back on God and unfortunately we all even little children are subject to its effects. Romans 6:23 the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Adam and Eve opened the door to sin but Jesus Christ came to give life. Children until the age of accountability do not know sin but they are victims of it at birth because sin entered the world with Adam and Eve. I hope what I have said helps you understand children and all of us are effected by sin in the world. If you don’t know Christ as your personal Savior I pray you will receive him into your heart with this simple prayer. Jesus I acknowledge I am a sinner, forgive me and come into my heart and be my Lord, my Savior and my Redeemer. Help me to live for you and know you love me with an everlasting love. In your Name I pray. Amen. God bless you.
NLT

I am troubled . my fiance lost his wife after 29 years. 5 years later he met me. i feel so blessed and so does he. His adult kids 29 and 32 ( women) wont see him until he stops seeing me and same with the grandchildren. He still pays car insurance and cell phone for one. Hes been a incredible father. He believes in God but his children do not. I know your not a pyschiatrist however maybe you could help us find a verse in the bible that we may meditate on. Many smiles your way. Thank you for your time. Brenda and Ben

Brenda, this is a hard place to be but I can only give you one of my favorite chapters in the Bible about waiting and trusting in God. I know you and he must be praying for his children and grandchildren. I am glad you two have each other. I am saddened by their behavior but without the Holy Spirit, this is not a surprise. I encourage you to read Psalm 37 where it tells us about God to: wait on Him, trust in Him, rely upon Him, rest in Him…and so on. He is faithful and we can leave things in His hands where our hands can do nothing. Trust Him. He is sovereign. I will pray for these children and grandchildren to see Christ in him and you and know that many children have come to faith in Christ late in life. Don’t lost heart.

If U are both saved and serving God then U don’t owe the children anything, if your spouses are dead then U are not breaking any of Gods commandments U are free to pick another partner, They should be happy for U in finding another partner to share time with and not be lonely.
They are not in the Holy Spirit of God because they are not savedso they are being selfish being afrais tehy are going to miss out not thinking they are gaining a new friend in U, U do not want to take their moms place but share a little place with them, Keep praying for them God takes teh empossible and makes it possible, Just trust Him. Go to google type in…. bible, marriages see what the bible says about it… there are many verses about marriage there R to many to type so go fine one for U.
but teh main thing is to pray and seek the Lord and He will show U want to do… He can do all things but fail U!

Hi Jack, I’m Aaron and i have a very concerning and a little disturbing question to ask you. My girlfriend and i have been seeing each other for 1 year now. We recently celebrated our 1year anniversary. I’m 20 years old and she is 28, we study the same course and attent the same university. My concern is her family, her mother doesn’t think much of the fact that we are dating but because of the age difference, plus my girlfriend is white and I’m black but we love each other regardless of all that. Firstly i want to know if what we are doing is wrong and how we can go about making her mom gain a positive approach towards us?. It will be very helpful if you could help us with bible verses and it will really help if you can direct us to bible verses related to our situation. Thanks

Jack Wellman April 28, 2013 at 1:54 pm

Hello Aaron and thank you sir for your comment and question. How about Galatians 3:27-29, “for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” We are all ONE in Christ and is Christ divided (1 Cor 7)

By the way, we have an article that addresses this which is called “What Does the Bible Say About Interracial Dating?” and I believe there is nothing wrong with this at all. Check out this link sir.

I went through a incredible experience that I believe God touched me. He showed me the pathway I was going down and he let me witness the tremendous pain it could cause me. After that week I was slowly going down the same path he made me witness within one night all consolidated (couldn’t even describe the pain). It was pain I never want to go through again and something I would not wish on my worst enemy. So I stopped on my own with the help of God. I felt my soul feel (for once) “clean”. Ever since I was I child I have had faith in God even when I was mocked and laughed at. I followed with the wrong crowd sometimes and did sinful things but never lost my faith. I never blamed God for anything. After my experience and the things I have witnessed still I never blame God. I pray so much more now after that Incredible experience of consolidated pain. I pray for EVERYONE even my enemies now. I know Gods love should be all I need and I feel selfish to ask the Lord for a wife and kids someday. I have a girl that is slowly coming back into my life after the mistakes I have made. I do love this girl with all of my heart and feel she is not ready or is hesitant to being together. It was ironic though. After not talking because of childish pride for so long she messaged me the morning after I had a dream about her. The only dream I have ever had about her since I met her. When she messaged me I immediately prayed and thanked God. I want her to be my wife one day within time. I have visions about it. I never lose hope or faith that I will marry her one day. God has blessed me in so many ways to be alive to even write this and guilt builds when I feel lonely even though the Lord is with me. I’m a dreamer, believer an a optimist. Always have been always will. I just need help to be more patient. I need a verse to speak to me.

Thank You

Justin, God wants to give you the desires of your heart. Yes, God wants His love to be the most important love you need, but he also made marriage and said it is not good for man to be alone. One thing you need to know is God designed us to be relational people. We are supposed to interconnect. He dies to give you the abundant life and wants it to be filled with joy. Marriage is a ministry and if you two are equally yoked. he will use you mightily in his kingdom. Pray and ask Him for direction. Ask Him if she is the one for you. Listen and obey. He will bless you!

Justin, some times God has to let painful things go thru our life to connect with us, it takes God. I once had pain os deviatating that I thought there was ni love it was just a word to use people, I have since found out that is not true and the devil tells us lies to break us so he can control our lives…I learned when God said he didn’t give U life and he can’t take it away…wow that is awesometo know that even the devil has to take heed to what God says! God ask the devil what he was doing? he answered and said I am going to and fro to seek those that I might devour, and God said have U consedered my son Job? HE had but said he is in your control… then God said I will let U have him but not his life, see the devil had to get Gods permission before He could do anything, god knew Jobs heart and that he was faithful to Him till the end. Even when he lost it all hisfamily even his friends, even his wife said curse God and die, he said no woman, he still choose God and God returned it all plus… the devil has no holds on U if U serve God, U know the best thing if U are saved commited your self into the hands of Jesus ask for all your sins to be forgiven says He then puts all your sins as far as the north is from the west believe that Jesus is the true son of God and He died for U to see U free tell Him so and praise God and then 1John 1-9 if U are just to confess your sins then He is just to forgive U! now U are a born again Christian baptized into His spirit, and the devil can not touch the blood of Jesus or he will have to confess his self and he is not about to do that… now U are blood bought and God has a plan for U, say here I am Lord use me to glorify U in all that I do! I am saved healed delivered protected preserved and made whole by the blood of Jesus everyday thank Him for waking U put on the whole armor of Eps 6-6 U R now in the Lords army U never go out with out your armor never speak any doubt or unbelief don’t give eenemy anything to use against U always pray for your enemies for your govnement Psm 119… Always pray about everything before making decisions Life is all about choices U reap what U sow..keep the Lord first in all things! God be with U..

I feel like I should say this to someone. I am married with 2 kids. They live in a different state. I have forgotten The Lord for sometime now busy making money. I recently made a big mistake and regret it every minute. I was at the mall and I met this lady, we had a nice conversation and exchanged numbers. I walked her to the car and made out with her. Now she has files a police complaint that I forcefully did it to her. I am completely ashamed of this adulteress act I did having a wife and family, I am deep trouble. Not only with the law because of her false accusations but also with my soul I broke my vows in the marriage, I regret this. I just wish this all goes back to normal. I just want The Lord in my life and my family. My selfish acts has ruined everything, please lord help me. I want to live a life like you and for you. I love you lord, I really do

My friend, I will join with you in praying for this to all work out and God to help you and the results not be harmful to your family. God is quick to forgive and the good news to me is that you were convicted of this as sin and that shows me that you truly do love the Lord and want to obey Him.

I will also beg others to join “Ivesinned” in praying with me to help him thru this and that their is no long term, harmful effects. God has forgiven you…and now we pray that also you get over your vows being broken. Please know that God forgives each and every sin (2 Cor 5:21 after we confess them (1 John 1:9) and we know that God can not lie so trust Him in this my friend.

Now you must forgive yourself. No one is perfect. At least it didn’t lead into something worse or sex so there is mercy at the throne. I will pray for you and pray that others will read this and join with us my friend. Don’t lose heart. We love you and care for you and pray for you.

No matter what happens I will always love you lord, I will always love you.

Why do people love to blame things like road accidents, cancer and disease on God (especially when it involves children) when the bible clearly states that it’s the enemy that comes to kill steal and destroy?

I’ve had cancer and gotten through it praise God, but I’m not dumb enough to be oblivious to it’s true origin.

Can you explain this phenomena of blame and some being too lazy to read the Word so they just assume it’s God?

Reply

Jack Wellman May 23, 2013 at 1:33 pm

Hello Ninjakai for your assessment that people do too easily blame God. Some of the best ways to reach people and change them from within is to use suffering and tragedies and so God uses the bad things that happen to reach those and bring them close to Him but yes, we can not blame God for this being a fallen world and the produce of sin. You know, I think you are right. They are not reading the Word of God and just don’t understand how God works today, even thru the bad things that happen (Rom 8:18, 28). Great point to which I agree.

I came across this blog and read all comments and cries and realize that many people are all in the same boat. Let me encourage some. I was born in 1964 or so I was told. I was an orphane and at the age of 5 or 6 I was adopted by a couple who could not have children. They were good people but love was not present and this was the cause of my behavior like running away from home etc. I was in boarding school looking out of e window at the moon and remember thinking , God if you are out there help me. I felt an overwhelming peace and love in me like never before. I walked and talked with God but later my rebellious sinful nature reared its ugly head and God took a back seat. I know this has happened to many. Recently I have found my fist love although He never left and now I am wiser and seen the result of sin and study His word with new passion. I want people to know it is never too late to fall in love with Him who first loved us. Today could be the day of surrender into glory and love. Be blessed fellow mani love you even at 2. 30 am while writing this

Hello Kirti. Jesus said that if you love me you will keep my commandments and these include loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves. We give back love when we visit the elderly in nursing homes, visit the sick in hospitals, visit those in jail and feed the poor. Also we should support in offerings our local church for Jesus said where your treasure is there is also your heart.

Jack Wellman June 15, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Hello Evanson. Let me warn you seriously. You must repent of this today, right now! You are in danger of hell fire for it doesn’t sound like, from what you’ve told me, that you ever repented in the first place. If I were you, right now, I would throw yourself before God and beg Him for forgiveness, determine today and repent of this and cut off this relationship with this girl or else! I would immediately have several sessions of intense prayer, fasting, and asking God to change your stoney heart to one of flesh which God can change hearts. Read 1 John chapter 3. This is what a Christian lives like. Then read Galatians chapter 5 and see the fruits of the flesh (the unsaved) and what the fruits of a believer are. You have no fruit of righteousness that I see at all! I also suggest you go to the pastor today and confess to him and step down as a worship leader. That is serious sin and you are a hypocrite if you are leading worship before God and living in such terrible sin. God will not leave those who do such things unpunished and requires those who are in worship services (pastors, deacons, worship leaders) live a pure life or He will chastise you. Talk to your pastor. Resign for now your position or God is going to deal with you for sexual immorality.

Paul wrote in 1 Cor 6:18 to “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.” When you have sex with someone outside of marriage, God sees it as your body joined with a harlot or a whore and the two become one!

1 Cor 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication sins against his own body. 19What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? 20For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

How serious is this? 1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.

2 Corinthians 12:21 I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged.

Galatians 5:19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

Ephesians 5:3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

Those who do such things will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God….rather, they will be condemned to eternal hell fire. I say this to make you fear God and as a warning and I do so out of love and not in judging you brother.

I would leave this man immediately. He is taking advantage of you and anyone living in sin like this is headed to the lake of fire. Obviously this man is not saved and so you don’t want to go where he is headed. What about you? Are you saved? Have you spoken with your pastor or do you even attend a church? If not, you too may be headed for destruction for those who do such things as living in sin and having sex outside of marriage are destined to be cast into the lake of fire (Revelatin 20). Move out….get away…seek counsel, get saved, join a church, talk to a pastor, pray!!! Repent today before it is too late.

Honestly, its by sitting and talking with the Lord, He will talk back. Worship Him, sin praises to Him and watch Him pour out His love on you, and as your focus stays on Him (and the more you sit with Him, the more you will want to get closer and closer to Him) you wont be focused on those other things. and the joy of the Lord will fill you and you will see that things that used to bother you no longer do.

What should I do? Because I really don’t want to loose her

Hello Fortunate. You had better get serious this time and make sure you have really repented before God and confessed your sin and placed your trust in Christ. To me, though I could be wrong, it doesn’t sound like you have truly been born again for no one who is born again continues, time and again, to go on sinning and sexual sin (fornication) is an abomination to God.

I would just now make plans to talk to your pastor, if you have one, repent today, put your trust in the Savior and realize you are running out of chances. Only when a person is saved do they have the power to overcome this type of sin. I would even fast and pray…fasting is a great tool to humble yourself before your God and break addictions or serious sins.

If you truly love this woman, the thought of losing or hurting her, will out way any selfish acts you might consider on your part. Talk to the Lord about it, allow Him to pour out His UNCONDITIONAL love on you, because when that happens, not only will that begin to teach you what love really is and help show you how to love, but you will begin to see that the closer you get to Him the more you will WANT to change.

I know now that my sins have great and that, unless I turn back to my Lord with all my heart and soul, I am destined never to be in heaven. But the comfort came from some of your Bible quotes and I am now trying to find my okd family Bible to read again.

Hi I’m currently 17 and came across this website while I was looking for important scriptures that I should know. Last year I had a Bf that pressured me to have sex but at the time I didn’t feel like he was pressuring me to do it. He kept tell me that he was in the army and I believed him. So one night I snuck out and we went and had sex the whole time I was thinking about how wrong it was. I told some friends and they told my step sister and she told my mom and step dad. They called the cops and had them come talk to me about sneaking out.The copycat talked to me knew the boy and told me that he had been in a lot of trouble with the law and that he wasn’t really a military man. When I went to see my Aunt she knew and talked to me and said that if I prayed about it that the lord would make me a virgin again so I did pray. But I still feel bad about it. Like I hadn’t prayed about it.

Reply

Jack Wellman August 8, 2013 at 10:46 am

Hello Laura. You can not become a virgin again but you can repent of this and all sins, confess them to God, and put your trust in Christ and then commit to live a pure life. Once you confess your sins they are gone (1 John1:9) if you are saved. If you are not saved then I urge to be sure and click on the link on the tope of this webpage that says “Jesus Do You Know Him.”

Perhaps Heb 13:5 will help as it says “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” This is so reassuring that He goes with us thru the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23). It doesn’t mean He will take us out of it but He will take us THROUGH it.

Julieta, know that God is teh begining and the end, there is no other, Jesus can do all things but fail U….His word is teh truth and it shall set U free and who he sets free is free indeed. Remember God made the heavens and the earth and and all that is in it. Nothing can be unless God allows it, and if He allows it then He has a purpose for it in your life. A trial is a test…to make U stronger and to see if U really believe what U say, or if U are saying it because it is a good day or etc: God has to try U to make U strong or we would never grow, secondly never complain or mummer, be thankful for all that U have, no matter what U are going thru, thank God for all things! For He is God on the mountain as well as in teh valley… Read about the journey thru the desert and how they always were mummering and complaining, and finally God let them all die, after 40 yrs He finally took only those that believed.
Remember never to speak or listen to garbage, meddling or gossiping is not Gods way Deu. 2-3 and Eps. 4-29 speak no currupt communication only speak that which glories God or who hear it will lead to God. Jesus has your back and He will see U thu it all..Judgement is the Lords.. His Love endures forever! Thru it all just say praise the Lord and thank Him for His correction and Love….

daughterofGod October 11, 2013 at 3:06 pm

Hello,

I have been reading some comments and some replies and want to point out a few things. First off, Jesus dealt with sin on the cross. There is no more sin consciousness on His part. He has declared you righteous. In order to be saved the Bible states: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 It has nothing to do with falling short and sinning bc the Bible makes it clear that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. It is not a matter of salvation. The Lord knows your heart. Now, in order to see the kingdom of God here on earth, the manifestation of His presence and the things that come with that… miracles, healing, prophecies, spiritual dreams and vision with interpretation and much much more, that is when your life truly comes into play… the more you seek Him, the more you will WANT to change, its not Him forcing you too, bc God loves you UNCONDITIONALLY, whether you are “missing the mark” which is what the actually word for sin means or you are praising and worshiping Him, he loves you just the same. You WILL see Him face to face in heaven if you believe in Him, but if you want that deeper relationship and a great manifestation from Him, then you will seek Him, want to change, will be sooo hungry for Him its hard to satisfy, and then just watch what wonderful things will come

Reply

Jack Wellman December 25, 2013 at 10:15 am

Thank you David for your question. Let me say that my first advice is to talk to your local or your own pastor in your church. That should be your first move. We all make bad choices of course…for everyone is a sinner but let me ask you this, is your finance a Christian? Does she attend church? You should make sure you are first being obedient in not forsaking the assembling of yourself with the Body of Christ (Heb 10:24-25). God will not answer our prayers when we are not in fellowship with Him.

You also said that you are trying to get your family back. Do you mean you are not married? You want to get them back so you can live with her without being married? You must know that God is against such an arrangement. If your fiancé is not a Christian and she does not attend church, then cut off that relationship today as painful as that is for we are not to be yoked to with unbelievers.

You say you have a daughter of 2 years of age? And you want to move back in with them before you get married? What example would this set for you daughter and then she would see that as normal and live with a man without being married. Do you feel that is okay? See what I am saying David? Again, talk to your pastor? That is if you even have a church home. If not, why not? You cannot expect God to help you until you get some things right before Him.

Does this make sense sir? I hope all of this helps you in some way.

He believes in God and so do i but why is it i cant believe him and trust him. He says he loves me im even ready to move out. He lies lies all yhe time about everything. Now why do i have to suffer so much if love is beautiful? I pray to God for strengh but I continue living this…i dont know what to think. I want to get married and hes just not ready…help!

Reply

Jack Wellman December 28, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Vicky, thank you for your question. If he is not ready, then don’t even think about it. He sounds like he would make a terrible husband anyway by lying all the time and perhaps he has been or will lie again about having an affair perhaps. Have you spoken with your pastor? If you are living with him now and are unmarried, then you and he are living in sin. You must move out or he must because God will never bless an arrangement like this. By the way, even the Devil believes in God but that doesn’t mean he is saved. If you read 1 John chapter 3, you will see that this man likely is not saved at all so don’t marry him is my suggestion and again, talk to your pastor.

I came across your website looking for some comforting scriptures…and found them I’m just asking that you pray for me, see I’m a young woman who is Godfearing, and believes in the son. I’m a youth minister and feel so overwhelm at this point in my life, my ministry is going well but my personal life is another story. I was in a relationship for 7 years got engage the young man decided he couldn’t hold out on what God said we needed to obstain from and had a baby with another young woman, I got over that and moved on. Refocus myself on the one who kept me all this time worked hard on myself got injured at work, had a surgery that didnt quite work but God Lol, anyway God sent a good friend to keep me company through out it all when everybody else disappeared, male to say the least I didn’t take note that this person had fallen for me but everybody else did… To make a long story short he told me he was involved with someone so how could it be that he was falling for me…. I mean we spent hours together, walking on the beach, talking on the phone talking about life…. It was time well spent and I didn’t want for anything, during the valentines day I had an MRI set up he mad sure he took me out to eat after this was not planned for these things I didn’t celebrate, I mean I even asked him about his girlfriend he told me she was at work but as all told me that wasn’t true he had no girlfriend and just wanted to see my reaction, anyway one day he had asked me to attend a concert with him and I told him no that was for couples and things wasn’t the same…he saw me on a Sunday before church and asked me something weird that made me really understand where his head was and by that Monday I told him about himself, I miss lots and have apologized but to no avail have I heard from him..now if I’m out I do often see him and he makes it his business to be in my eye view Lol I just need prayer because at this point I’m tired and just don’t want to keep dealing with it, I’ve ask God if he was the one to show me but I’ve stop praying about it and left it alone…I just want to be happy please pray for me, I need Gods peace

Hi Jack, I have a question to ask you and i hope you can help. I use to have weird dreams like the second coming of Jesus Christ. In my dream, I saw Jesus coming but i cannot see his face because it was too bright. There were hurricanes and cyclones happening in some of my dream, I saw a mountain where many people were crying and praying begging forgiveness. But what i do not understand was there were pastors,church leaders, missionaries and good people amongst them. Also in my dream, i was never taken up, since it was too bright i cover my eyes with my hand and satan was also sitting near me covering his face. he was very dark. I use to have this kind of dreams twice in a year and it freaks me out sometimes. I believe Jesus will come again but i don’t understand why i have this kind of dreams. I am a christian but i am very lazy when it comes to praying and reading the Holy Bible. I also want to serve The Lord but i dont know how to start. Why did i have this kind of dreams?? Pray for me as well as my soul needs Christ.

Jack Wellman January 21, 2014 at 8:54 pm

Christina. The Word of God is always true and never is wrong but dreams are subjective and you cannot hold much doctrinally about dreams. Dreams are just that…dreams. But the Word of God is objective, timeless truth. Don’t worry about dreams. These happen to me too but then I open the Word of God and trust in in and not in what I dream about. Since you are a Christian, you will not be left behind nor will others but many who profess Christ do not posses Christ and will be disappointed someday by hearing Jesus’ words (Matt 7:21-23). We ALL have dreams and I have had these too but what can we trust most with our eternal future? Our dreams or the Word of God. Trust God. He will never forsake you nor leave you and His love never fails and He never gives up on us. Read John chapter 6 and 10 to see why I say that. Rest at ease. Dreams are dreams but God’s Word cannot be broken.

And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:5-9

And you, fathers do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. ~Ephesians 6:4

Hi Jack! Thank you for having this site. I guess I can find a little bit help here. I am very much depressed after all the bad luck that comes to me. I don’t want to think that it is a bad luck because I know God is there for us to help in our problems but it comes to my mind that I don’t believe in Him because I can’t cope up my problems. All my failures brought me to give up everything: work, friends, communications to relatives and not having interest to enter in a relationship. I used to stay in my room and spend my time doing nothing. I’m still working but just for a work, nothing else. Broken heart brought me to stop communicating. Sometimes I spend time looking for a God’s word to ease my pain and hoping to forget everything of my past. Honestly, the only thing that comes to my mind to pray over me is to visit my Pastor friend but I am very much sad because he left is home and I can’t find him anymore. I forgot his name but all the words that comes to him always touches my heart. I want to make the story short, when I was a kid, I wished to be a sacristan and also a priest but at my age now (34), why does He make me like this? Can you please make a pray over for me? I’m still hoping I could survive on this God’s tests. Please spare a little time to pray for me.
Thank you so much.

Very timely, Jack, your advice to Vincent. Someone I love is going through what you speak of, right now. So without you knowing, that greatly encouraged me too. Jesus, too, prayed for Peter’s faith in God to be restored after Peter denied Him three times. And the result of Jesus’ prayer was that Peter became a great but humble man of God for the rest of his life. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
