The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!
Psalms 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?
Neat trick to help one remember how many books are in the bible.
O L D T E S T A M E N T
3 letters in the word Old, 9 letters in word Testament
1 + 1+ 1 (space) 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1
39 books in the Old Testament
N E W T E S T A M E N T
3 letters in the word New, 9 letters in word Testament
1+1+1 (X or cross separates) 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1
(3) X (9)
3 x 9 = 27 books in the New Testament
- The first letter of the Greek word Christos is transliterated into our alphabet as an X.
The X or Cross is what marks the New Testament different from the Old Testament.
39 + 27 = 66 books in total
