Valentine’s Day Bible Verses: 20 Great Quotes

by Pamela Rose Williams · Print Print · Email Email

Valentine’s day is all about love. I remember it was something that we celebrated as young children. We would get “valentines” (little love note cards) and sign our name to the back and then distribute them to all of our classmates.  It was at times special and awkward to receive a valentine from a secret admirer. As an adult I no longer really observe the day, but many Christians and non-Christians do.  Since it is about love, it is very easy to find Bible verses that relate.

... so they decided lovers should celebrate love along with the birds!

What do you know about Valentine’s Day? Even today it is all about love notes, hearts, candy and even red roses.  But did you know that originally it was about celebrating bird’s mating season? It’s true, mid February is when the bird mating season happens in European countries and so they decided lovers should celebrate love along with the birds! I found a little history of Valentine’s Day over at Christianity Today; read more here: Valentine’s Day.

Take a look at these Bible Quotes that you can meditate upon as Valentine’s Day approaches.

God’s Love is Steadfast, Unselfish & Enduring

2 Chronicles 1:8 And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place.

Psalms 52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever.

Daniel 9:4 I prayed to the LORD my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments…

Micah 7:18 Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression  for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever,  because he delights in steadfast love. 

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

1 John 4:16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us. 

Romans 5:7-8 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Bible Characters Who Loved

Jacob loved

Genesis 29:20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her.

Solomon loved

Song of Solomon 1:2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!For your love is better than wine

Jesus Encouraged the Disciples to love

Matthew 22:37–40 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Paul encouraged the Colossians to Love

Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Jesus loved

1 John 3:16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

John encouraged the Church to Love

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

Love:  Better, Stronger, Greater & Perfect

Proverbs 10:12 (KJV) Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

Proverbs 13:24 Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.

Proverbs 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it.

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

1 Corinthians 13:13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Love is a command
That Christians are called to do;
Our Lord says “Love your God,
And love your neighbor, too.”

Some people are easy to love;
They are human rays of sun;
They light up every life,
And encourage everyone.

You are in that group,
So I sincerely want to say:
You are often in my thoughts;
Happy Valentine’s Day!
