Here's the kicker. After all that, they sent me another email back saying that I was the man they wanted for their wedding, that all this had been a test to see if I truly believed and stood by what I said I did. They told me that they had done this with 4 other ministers and all four had in fact sold out, for less than what they had offered me. Turns out, they want a Christian ceremony, AND they asked me to preach a short Gospel sermon at the ceremony because most of their guests will be unsaved friends and family!
I'm stunned... and very thankful that I made the right choice. Someone dangles $1000 in front of your face for a 15 minute ceremony, temptation rises! The thought crossed my mind that it was 2 hours away and no would ever know. But I told myself that I would know, and my God would know... and I was not going there. Thank God for strength!
