What is Spiritual Accountability?
The Bible says much about accountability. In fact, we need to understand that all of us are accountable before God. 2 Corinthians 5:10 says, “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.”
Accountability is the springboard that allows us to grow in the right direction and become more involved in the greater good Standards – Jesus loved people enough to help them realize that accountability held them up to God’s unchangeable standards that did not vary with the situational ethics of the world. Right is right and wrong is wrong.
My spirituality is the foundation of my life
I take on very few challenges without first consulting my spiritual compass. Having that center of reason and understanding gives me the courage to make difficult choices in life.
Although I am sometimes intimidated by the outcome, I build confidence by trusting in my source of guidance (the Holy Spirit, or as I like to call my Holy Coach). A big part of my spirituality is tied to the values that I live by. Those values guide me unfailingly, so I rely on them to give me direction in life.
Whenever I choose to follow the source of my direction, I am comforted. Even feelings of sadness drift away as I know that my choice comes from a positive place with positive intention.
Before starting each day, I express gratitude for the guidance received. Connecting with my spiritual center energizes me and gives me hope.
Even the hardest situations become manageable because I know that I am led by a power higher than myself. I trust in its ability to protect me when I am in danger. It uplifts me when I am down. I am truly thankful for my spiritual foundation in God.
Today, it is a blessing to be a believer in something more powerful than my humanity. I sense my spiritual guidance at work in my life, so I am fearless. I can overcome any challenge because of my reliance on my God, spirituality, and Savior Jesus Christ.
