The Preacher Made a Visit

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners.   In general, he was cordially received by most; however, at one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door.

He did not wish to force his presence, thinking that there was some family crisis.  Therefore, he took out a business card and 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.’

It's very okay to be naked in fact if you are spiritually clothed.
