I have only a couple of basic wedding sermons. This is one of them. The scriptural reference here is from Galations 5, "the fruit of the Spirit..", which in all honesty, I merely adapted from the ubiquitous I Cor 13: love = patient, kind, etc....This week's couple simply chose the Galations text and I tweeked the sermon just a tad to suit. (and if you are wondering where Jesus is --the sermon doesn't stand alone! Jesus is all over the rest of the service by name: in the vows, the blessing of the rings, the prayers -- the message may seem generic, but Jesus permeates the worship... just so you know!)
[i]from Galatians 5: 22-23, 25-,26
: â€œ..The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness & Self control. There is no law against such thingsâ€¦If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, competing against one another, envying one another.â€
