Having been given God’s love and your love, I commit to: in love, caring for you in hardship and in happiness. In honor, revering you as my chosen lifelong friend. In His peace, leading as He enables and directs. In hope, persevering along side you. In God’s forgiveness, seeking forgiveness and to forgive. For, in all things, I am yours and for you forever.
I desire to love you in a way that demonstrated to the world the love we have in Christ. We know love because He shows it to us by choosing us while we were still sinners, emptying Himself of all His privileges, dying, pursuing and restoring relationship with Him for all eternity. Because of this love, I can confidently dedicate and submit my life to you- in better, in worse, in richer, in poorer, in sickness and in health- come what may I will choose to love you. I vow to pursue Christ in my life and our marriage; to commend myself to your leadership; to choose you; to love you; to fight for you; to remind you of your significance and purpose to Christ and His kingdom. I give all of my strengths and entrust all of my weaknesses to serve you. I vow to be for Him, for you, for us even unto death.
