Accountability

Luke 17:3

“Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.”

Some thing’s taught in Scripture make us so uncomfortable, we tend to ignore them. The notion of being personally accountable to someone else for our actions is certainly one of them.

Today we live in a time where having true accountable relationships are non-existent, members within the same churches are now at odds with one another over political and philosophical differences, there now exist zero accountability.

Paul admonished Christian’s in Galatians 6:1-3 that Believers caught in sin should be admonished, and supported by strong spiritual leadership to help correct the errors of their way.

Accountability must be assumed, we need to be willing to receive righteous wisdom and instruction, be approachable…. Confronting one another and holding each other accountable, whether we agree or not, whether we like it or not, we are accountable to one another.
