Sermon Illustrations

There is an old story of a pastor that plays hooky from church and goes to the golf course. Peter points out the pastor’s sin and God tells Peter that He will punish the pastor. The pastor proceeds to play the greatest game of his life. His drives were long and straight. His putts were nothing but miraculous. He set a new course record. He would’ve have crushed Tiger. He even hit a hole on one on the last hole.

“I thought you were going to punish him,” Peter wondered.

“That was the punishment. Who is he going tell?” God replied.

Of course we all know that there is no golfing in heaven. Apparently, not all of knew that. No golfing will be in hell where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. None of that in heaven.
