Is it in the Bible to get married to “The One?”

Is it Necessary to Find ‘The One’ Before Getting Married According to the Bible?

The quest for “the one” has captivated people’s attention for decades. Finding “the one” has become a primary focus for many people in today’s culture, both within the Christian community and beyond.

Finding “the one” is not just a top priority for many single people today, but it’s also the subject of countless movies, TV series, and songs.

It’s hardly unexpected that many people all across the world want to discover “the one.”

Unique One

It would have been you if my dreams come true,

Not that I have any excuses to provide.

Because you were never content to let things be as they were, but you could have had a lot of fun if you had been “the one” (“The One,” Taylor Swift).

The current search for “the one” is captured in these lines from Taylor Swift’s “The One.” The Bible does teach that getting married is beneficial, but it doesn’t guarantee that everyone will end up with their soul mate.

In addition, many people believe that they have already met “the one,” or their ideal mate, since they have seen this person portrayed in media. It’s inevitable that a lot of people will get hitched, but unfortunately, there is no such thing as a “ideal” spouse. We’re all born with a sinful disposition, thus we all make mistakes.

Every person is guilty of sin and falls short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). It’s not fair to your significant other to hold them to the impossible criteria of finding “the one.” The Bible, in contrast to global religions, never promises us that we will meet “the one.”

God created marriage to be a beautiful institution, but not everyone will choose to enter into one. In his letter to the Romans, Paul explains that God has blessed him with the blessing of singleness. Yet God has endowed everyone of you differently; some of you have this talent, while others have that (1 Corinthians 7:7).

Further, in Matthew 19:11-12, we read, “Jesus responded, ‘Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. Because some eunuchs are born that way, while others are made eunuchs by others, and still others deliberately adopt a eunuch lifestyle in pursuit of heavenly rewards. To anybody can accept this, I say, “Accept it.”

Both Jesus and Paul encourage us to embrace our singleness if that is God’s will for us, so that we can devote more of our time and energy to serving Him. Therefore, neither Jesus nor Paul promise us that we shall eventually meet “the one.”

While this may be upsetting to hear, remember that God has given you this gift of singlehood as a blessing. Married people tend to lose some of their fervor for Christ that they had before they tied the knot (1 Corinthians 7:1-16).

As soon as two people exchange vows, their focus shifts from pleasing God to pleasing each other. Accept your singleness as a blessing and use this opportunity to draw closer to God.

Christ alone may satisfy the search for “the one” who will ultimately provide fulfillment to one’s life. In contrast to what God can do, no human partner can satisfy your every need.

Many people hope that by getting married, they may finally put their loneliness, insecurity, and melancholy behind them.

Marriage is not a walk in the park, despite what you may have seen in romantic comedies or other forms of fantasy media.

Jesus Christ is the “one” we don’t really need. Nothing can ever separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord, according to Romans 8:38-39: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither the height nor the depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Jesus Christ is the only one who can love us unconditionally in spite of our many flaws and shortcomings. Only God has true, unconditional love for us as His children, and that’s what Jesus has for us. He has unending affection for each one of us.

While marriage is a blessing from God, it should not be our primary focus. Colossians 2:10 reads, “and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” This means that our fulfillment is found solely in Christ. Everything that has power and authority reports to him.

Regardless of what the world or even other Christians may teach us, we need nothing else than to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

Once we have put our faith in Christ as our Savior, we are whole and need for nothing more. You don’t need a partner to feel whole in Christ, therefore you shouldn’t worry that being single will keep you from finding happiness.

Putting their trust in God

The idea of discovering “the one” is not a biblical one because it is nowhere to be found in the Holy Scriptures. Although the Bible devotes considerable attention to the institution of marriage, it makes no promises about how we could ultimately discover our “one true love.” A ideal partner doesn’t exist since we’re all flawed and have different standards for what it takes to be “the one.”

Problems and hardships are inevitable in any relationship, but a man and woman who put their faith in Christ together can overcome anything. Nothing is perfect, not even Christian couples.

Our collective desire to find “the one” can be traced back to the media’s glorification of love relationships.

Finding “the one” is often seen as a panacea for many of life’s ills, a way to make ourselves feel more loved and understood by another person, and a companion for the journey of life. However, the Bible never promises us that we shall.

To What Extent Does This Signify?

In the end, Jesus is “the one” we’re missing because in Him, we’re made whole and complete. Even though we have done terrible things, the Lord still loves us and is there to welcome us home.

Jesus’ love for us is unchanging since He has always existed and always will (Hebrews 13:8). It’s impossible for God to love us any more than He already does. Always keep in mind that God’s love for you is unending and that He alone can satisfy you.

We can only find true fulfillment in knowing Christ. However, despite the poetic and romantic connotations, the Bible makes no promises about our eventual success in locating “the one.”

Instead, the instant we embrace Jesus as our Savior and Lord, the Bible says we are finished and whole. God’s love for you is much greater than any love a human could provide.
