Bible Verses to Put on Your Sign

Another route you can go when creating a sign saying is by putting a Bible verse. Bible verses are great because they are pretty easy to choose. There are tons of Bible verses about love to choose from. 

The Word of God also helps keep your sign theologically aligned. The Holy Bible is the basis for the Christian belief system. If you are creating a sign using the Bible, you don’t have to be worried about if it is theologically accurate. It is literally the original text. 

One challenge that arises however whenever you create a sign with a sign with a Bible verse is that verses can be long. You want people to be able to read your sign in the time that they pass by. If the sign is too long, people won’t read it.

It is for this reason, that we recommend paraphrasing verses. Although it might take some extra work to make sure your paraphrase is accurate, it will be worth it. It will allow you to remove filler words, so the sign will be more effective.  

For this section these are not scripture quotations, they are paraphrases. However, if you have the size, you are welcome to place full verses on your church’s outdoor sign. 

With that being said, here are some ideas for Bible verses to put on your church sign for Valentine’s Day.
