While out on the
field sharing the Gospel one day, I came across a man I will call
Greg Hofler (G):
Hi! My name is Greg and I am out today taking a survey on this
and I wondered if I could take ten minutes of your time and get your
reaction to it?
I then proceeded to
completely through up
We then had the
Which of these two people best represents your life?
Somewhere in between?
Which would you like to
represent your life?
The Christ-Controlled life.
Keven, have you ever
invited Jesus into your heart before?
How did you first receive Jesus?
When I was eight I prayed with my
parents and invited Jesus into my heart as Savior and Lord.
Keven, Jesus has promised that once we invite Him into our hearts
that He will never leave us!
13:5 states, "I will
never ever desert you, nor will I ever, ever, ever forsake you."
Since Jesus promised that once we invited Him in that He would not
leave or forsake us, where then would he be right now in relation to
He is in my heart.
Keven, the Bible teaches that to have Jesus in your heart is to have
1 John 5:11-13
"And the witness is this, that
God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who
has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does
not have the life."
Keven, since Jesus said that
he would not leave or forsake you and since the Father says to have
the Son is to have eternal life, even though Jesus may not be
currently perfectly Lord of your life, you do have eternal life.
Keven, I have another booklet
Is the Answer to Your Needs
which I believe would better
minister to Your need. Would you allow me to share it with you?
I then went through
with him and read the prayer
to him on
We then had the
Would you like to pray this prayer right now and ask Jesus to refill
you full of His Holy Spirit and retake control of your life?
Yes I would!
Then take a minute to silently confess to Jesus any sins you want to
confess. When you are done, let me know and we will pray through
this prayer together.
Keven took a minute
to confess to Jesus his sins.
I then took Keven
through the prayer and then explained to Keven:
Keven, no matter how many times
in a day you sin, repeat this prayer and you will stay filled with
the Holy Spirit and in fellowship with Jesus.
Keven at this point
looks a little confused about this.
Keven, for example, you are
driving down the road and someone in another car cuts you off. Out
of your mouth come several choice words. You recognize you have
sinned. When you recognize you have sinned, repeat this prayer and
then you will be able to stay moment by moment filled with the Holy
Spirit and in relationship with Jesus.
What about if you get out
and punch the guy out!
You need to also repent of your sin. Repenting
means to turn away from the sin, to not want to do it again. You
cannot do this in your own strength. That is why the final step in
is to then pray and ask Jesus
for His grace, strength and power to overcome whatever sins of your
flesh you are having trouble with by praying this prayer:
I confess to You that I cannot overcome my problems in my own
strength and power and so by faith pray for Your grace, strength and
power to overcome these problems in my flesh. By faith thank You for
the answer to these prayers in Your name Jesus, Amen.
As often as you have a problem with your flesh,
you need to pray this prayer and ask Jesus for His grace, strength &
power to overcome the problems in your flesh.
Can I keep these books?
Yes you can. My address is on the back. If you have any questions or
other needs you need help with, please feel free to write and I will
do whatever I can to help you.
