“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” Hebrews 3:13 (NIV)
The word “accountability” is one the world despises, and even the church seems to have grown to oppose – mainly because it is misunderstood and because we have grown overfamiliar with the term, forgetting the power of living it out.
In this latest clip in the #BeEquipped series, Ryan Kingsley and Shaun Brauteseth unpack the concept of “accountability”; what it is, why we need it, and where is it seen in the Bible. They take a closer look at the biggest reasons people oppose accountability and discuss why it’s not others meddling with your life. Instead, they position accountability as an opportunity to truly live like Jesus.
Ryan and Shaun close by calling us to be bold, live in the light and give an account today so we can stand firm to the end.
