We are in the final week of a three-week sermon series called the Rule of Life, which is about having both rhythms and restrictions to help you connect with God and resist popular culture.
This week, Terrence preached on “Accountability” and how it looks to be accountable for what Christ has called and willed us to be.
Unity of Accountable Community
1. Our relationship with Christ is always in the context of the body of Christ.
2. Our commitment to the Body of Christ is a measure of our commitment to the way of Jesus.
How does confession fit into your current relationship structure? Who are the people that know your struggles? Who are the people that you can count on to keep it confidential but who will take what you say and will go to God interceding on your behalf? Will you be the person that speaks love and truth, but also walks alongside someone back to the hands and feet of Jesus?
Your good traits don’t belong to you, but neither does your pain and your struggle. It belongs to the bigger body of Christ.
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. – James 5:16
