Despite the ever-increasing normality of singleness and the rise in the number of people delaying marriage until later in life, there remains something of a stigma attached to singleness, especially when the person is over a particular age. These Bible verses for singles will help you stay content as a Christian single.

I encountered that stigma during the 13 years I was a single Christian. I especially encountered it in church. So I thought that I would share with you some of the scriptures that encouraged me over those years.

The following Bible verses for singles all serve as a reminder for single Christians that:

  • Your value isn’t defined by the love that another person has for you.
  • It’s not a romantic relationship with a man or a woman that completes you but a loving relationship and faithful relationship with God.
  • Being single has many spiritual benefits.
  • The qualities and abilities that many look for in a spouse are already found in God.

Hosea 2:19-20 – I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord.

Matthew 6:33 – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

1 Corinthians 7:8 – Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.

1 Corinthians 7:32-34 – I would like you to be free from concern.

An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world — how she can please her husband.
