An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Never Too Old to Learn

(Isaiah 59:17 NASB)  He put on righteousness like a breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on His head; And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.

A few days ago I was doing research on a passage and noticed this verse as a cross-reference.  I am sure that somewhere in my past someone has pointed this out but it never sunk in.  Paul was quoting Isaiah when he wrote the following verses.
(Ephesians 6:14 KJV)  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
(Ephesians 6:17 KJV)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

This is nothing earthshaking but I thought I would share this little tidbit of how the entire Bible works together.
