The new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners.
At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. He took out a card, wrote ‘Revelation 3 verse 20’ on the back and stuck it in the door.
When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, ‘Genesis 3 verse 10.’
Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3 verse 20 begins ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock.’
Genesis 3 verse 10 reads, ‘I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.’
