John Murray (Brief PhD Edit)

Stefan Island-Montenegro

Holy Spirit and Regeneration

John Murray (1937-1966)(1977) explains that the Holy Spirit ‘summons men into union and fellowship with his Son so that, united to him in whom all spiritual blessings are treasured, they come to posses Christ and all that belongs to him in his capacity as Saviour and Redeemer.’[1]  Regeneration[2] takes place which is a powerful change in the human being via the Holy Spirit,[3] which transforms one corrupt and in sin in opposition to God,[4] to one pleasing to God and trusting in God.  It is a new ‘vital principle, a new habit, the law of God, and a divine nature’ are framed in a human heart.[5]

Matthew 19:28 English Standard Version (ESV) 

28 Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world,[a] when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Footnotes: Matthew 19:28 Greek in the regeneration 

Titus 3:5-7 English Standard Version (ESV) 

5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Mayor Rob Ford, excellent public relations for the city of Toronto. I am 'certain' there are no other crazy mayors in Canada... On a more serious note, yes I think he should resign. Many of us would not get away with such actions in a profession.

Jack from Houston: The Pilot and the Priest

A priest dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, 'Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven ? '

The guy replies, 'I'm Jack, retired airline pilot from Houston .'

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, 'Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.' The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next, it's the priest's turn. He stands erect and booms out, 'I am Father Bob, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years.'

Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the priest, 'Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.

'Just a minute,' says the good father. 'That man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can this be?

'Up here - we go by results,' says Saint Peter. 'When you preached - people slept. When he flew, people prayed.'

Even though the toenail fungal is not uncommon (44% of people
with toenail fungus admit that it has a bad effect on
self-esteem), it feels like you are the sole person
in the world that suffers. The first situation
to consider is the relationship between thoughts and conditions like depression and stress.
As parents, how much time and energy do we invest in teaching
our kids the importance of.
