Hebrews 4:12-13 ESV

12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword,

piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and

discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is

hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to

whom we must give account.

1. Biblical Accountability

Biblical Accountability begins with taking responsibility for one's own actions

and making a conscious choice of allowing God and others to help in

accomplishing what is right. Asking God for protection is a sign of dependence

on God and accountability to him.

Romans 14:10-13 ESV

10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise

your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11 for it is

written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue

shall confess to God."; 12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to

God. 13 Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but

rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a


2. Church Hurt

Accountability means acknowledging and fixing your mistakes. It's easy to pass

the blame on someone else, but accountability means accepting responsibility

for your errors and taking the appropriate actions. Mistakes are a necessary

part of the learning process.

  • We are flawed as human beings, Christ is flawless.

1 Peter 1:13-16 NLT

13 So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious

salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. 14

So you must live as God's obedient children. Don't slip back into your old ways

of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn't know any better then. 15 But

now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.

16 For the Scriptures say, "You must be holy because I am holy.";

3. Self-Control

Accountability is willingly accepting responsibility for your actions. An

accountable staffer owns their work and doesn't try to make excuses for

themself. If something goes wrong, they communicate honestly with their team

about what happened rather than hiding the truth.

  • Take ownership in your response and actions towards other people.

Matthew 6:14-15 NLT

14 "If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive

you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your


Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all

types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted,

forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
