A new minister moved into
town and went out one Saturday to visit his parishioners.
All went well until he
came to one house. It was obvious that someone was home, but no one came to
the door even after he had knocked several times.
Finally, he took out his card, wrote on the back "Revelation 3:20"
and stuck it on the door.
The next day, as he was counting the offering he found his card in the
collection plate. Below his message was a notation "Genesis 3:10."
Upon opening his Bible to
the passage, his face turned red, and he let out a roar of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 reads: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man
hear my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and
will dine with him, and he with Me."
Genesis 3:10 reads: "And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked."
