Sermon Illustrations

A certain pastor-cum-student had gone preaching out on missions. When he returned to college, it was already examination time and he had a hard time revising for the papers. During the exams, he saw that the questions were quite tough. He therefore went into the toilet and he prayed telling God that he had been out on His work and therefore if he fails, he would fail with Him! When the results came out, he had performed below the marks which meant that he was to re-sit for the examination. Then it happened! The examiners realized that so many students had performed poorly and therefore the average mark was lowered to the point where this pastor had scored and therefore there was no resit for him…and for God!
