Did I read the "Introduction into the purpose and use of this text"? (If not: it may help to do so now, especially in case of numerous general ambiquities).
Have I studied the chapters of this commentary in sequence? (If not - and if you are really interested in the emulation of Christ: study also the previous chapters).
If I did not know the related chapters of the Bible, did I take the trouble to read them? .
Have I studied till now without having the distressing feeling that I have skimmed over an earlier passage in the commentary or in the Bible, which I did not understand? (Otherwise consider that passage calmly again and as far as possible without prejudices.
Did I read and use the "methodical tips, Christian Meditation..." as a possible aid to deeper understanding, experiencing and working out the contents? .
Do I have a general idea of my present abilities, traits of
character, habits? (If not: think about it and make notes).
If the answer is yes: Is there a certain quality - related to the text just studied - which I want to pray for urgently and which I wish to improve, (or which is already developing)?.
Did I think of applying my latest realizations in my daily life?.
Am I already open for being guided in my conscience?.
Have I attempted to find or achieved a more direct guidance by God through Jesus Christ on my path?.
So, where do I stand in my relation to God?
