These days, people tend to get a little defensive or on edge when someone comes to their door. Whatever the reason for the knock, we’re not always in a position to answer inside. One pastor learns the reason why his parishioner didn’t answer and boy, is it funny!

Pastor Knows Parishioner Is Home But No One Answers – Then He Gets a Cryptic Note

A 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 business card, wrote ‘Revelation 3:20’ on the back of it 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 3:10..’

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.

Revelation 3:20 begins “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.”

Genesis 3:10 reads, “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.”

Now, that’s an extensive knowledge of Scripture! Please share this if you can relate to not wanting to answer the door!
