01/17/11 - Accountability

Who holds you accountable?

On a recent broadcast of Revive Our Hearts, Nancy Leigh DeMoss shared that she gave a list of questions that her closest friends can ask her anytime.

Here were her questions:
  • Are you having devotions, or are you having devotion? How was your time with the Lord this morning?
  • How's your spirit? Are you uptight, anxious?
  • Are you serving the Lord with gladness?
  • How are your spiritual and emotional gauges, and what are you doing to refill them?
  • Are there any areas that you've been teaching or proclaiming something that you're not living?
  • Is there anything you've been doing or not doing that you would not want others to know?
  • Are you faking it? Are you leaving a better impression on others than is honestly true?
  • Are there any areas of your life where you're not obeying what you know God wants you to do? Is there anything you need to repent of?
  • Is your heart tender and responsive to the Lord?
  • And I might add that question that I heard a year ago at this luncheon. Has the pace of ministry outraced the pace of intimacy in your life?

What would your questions be? And do you have someone who you trust to ask you these at any time?
