  4. Even though David had committed adultery and murder, did God still love him? And did He chasten David during the year he covered his iniquity?

  10. When the heaviness became to much for David to bear any longer, what did he do?
  11. What is the danger to a Christian that feels no guilt, heaviness or remorse over his sin?  Think about the many Christians who no longer grieve over their sin.  What has happened to their hearts?

  13. When God's fiery presence filled the room, what was the reaction of these 70 "church goers"?  And what caused them to feel this way?
  14. If you have a besetting sin, does it trouble and grieve you? Does it cuase you emotional pain, guilt, sorrow and despari? Do you feel you're almost ready to collapse under the heavy load of it?
  15. Does your heart cry out, "Lord, my sins are over my head. I know that Your chastening hand is upon me. I don't want to be a slave to it any longer. Please give me back my freedom"? (If your answer is "YES", then you're on the way to healing and deliverance.)
  16. How can you get back your shout and your joy?
