Ultimate Accountability
Walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:12 NASB

For most of us, it is a daunting thought: one day, perhaps soon, we’ll come face-to-face with our Heavenly Father, and we’ll be called to account for our actions here on earth. Our personal histories will certainly not be surprising to God; He already knows everything about us. But the full scope of our activities may be surprising to us: some of us will be pleasantly surprised; others will not be.

Today, do whatever you can to ensure that your thoughts and your deeds are pleasing to your Creator. Because you will, at some point in future, be called to account for your actions. And the future may be sooner than you think. 

The temptation of the age is to look good without being good. - Brennan Manning, 100 Days of Prayer

The Bible teaches that we are accountable to one another for our conduct and character. - Charles Stanley

We can always gauge where we are by the teachings of Jesus Christ. - Oswald Chambers

The best evidence of our having the truth is our walking in the truth. - Matthew Henry

Today’s Prayer
Dear Lord, let my words and actions show the world the changes that You have made in my life. You sent Your Son so that I might have abundant life and eternal life. Thank You, Father, for my Savior, Christ Jesus. I will follow Him, honor Him, and share His Good News, this day and every day. Amen
