1. Have you made a sincere commitment? Have you chosen WHOM you will follow?
    2. How serious are you about it?
    3. To what extent are you honouring your commitment?
    4. In what ways do you welcome conviction?
    5. Study this passage: “But David’s heart troubled him after he had numbered the people. So David prayed to Adonai, “I have sinned greatly in what I have done! But now, Adonai, please take away the iniquity of Your servant, for I have acted very foolishly”” (2 Sam.24:10).  (a) Does your heart trouble you when you have done wrong? (b) How quickly are you brought to conviction? © How long does it take you to get to repentance?
    6. To what extent do you avoid conviction?
    7. Connect the dots between a surrendered, loyal heart & the process of responding to conviction.
    8. Identify the difference in the outcome of the response to conviction of the non-surrendered, fleshly self-centred heart and the surrendered, loyal heart.
    9. In what instances/situations are you most resistant to letting go of that sin, accepting conviction, and confessing  and repenting?
    10. Read the Joshua 24 passages again. What pagan gods are you still holding onto?
    11. What should confessing/repenting be followed by?
    12. If you believe you are serious about your commitment to follow Jesus/Yeshua, yet there is a failure to accept conviction and repent, you will need to reassess your choice.
    13. Re-assess your understanding of what it means tofollowing Jesus/Yeshua (go back to Luke 9:23 and meditate on every word until you hear from the Holy Spirit), remembering that you will be held _____________________ for how you lived that out.
