Personal Accountability Check

Within the body of Christ we have an abundance of benefit from developing relationships with other believers, relationships that produce spiritual reality, honesty, obedience to God, and genuine evaluations of one’s walk and relationship with God and others.

As ideal as this may seem, there is still the obligation of each believer to always be mindful of his or her actions and its impact on those that are involved.

Let me propose a quick Personal Test that can help keep you accountable and further increase your level of integrity before God and others.

Put your plans and intentions through each test:

  1. Spiritual Test – Has God already spoken it in His word? (2 Timothy 3:16)
  2. Secrecy Test – Would it bother me if everyone knew this was my choice? ( Proverbs 11:3)
  3. Survey Test – What if everyone followed my example? (1 Timothy 4:12)
  4. Spiritual Test – Am I being people-pressured or Spirit-led. (Galatians 1-10)
  5. Stumbling Test – Could this cause another person to stumble? (Romans 14:21)
  6. Serenity Test – Have I prayed and received peace about this decision? (Philippians 4:6-7)
  7. Sanctification Test – Will this keep me from growing in the character of Christ? (2 Corinthians 3:18)
  8. Supreme Test – Does this glorify God? (1 Corinthians 10:31)
