Scripture Reading: Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two
There’s a story about two missionaries who were assigned to go door-to-door in a certain neighborhood to knock on doors in an attempt to share the Gospels with complete strangers. A very challenging task even for the most seasoned of evangelists. It’s a challenging task and requires thick skin because of the frequent numbers of rejection by those whom they are expected to go door-to-door and call on. Such was the case with one particular woman, who after they had come to her door and knocked, told them in no uncertain terms that she did not want to hear their message and literally slammed the door in their faces. To her surprise however the door didn’t close. In fact it literally bounced back open.
