Do You Have an Accountability Partner?
R. C. Sproul Jr. talks about being asked by a deacon at church twenty years ago if he had an "accountability group." When it was explained that this would be "a group of men who are active in your life, that care for you enough to challenge you when you fall into sin. They watch out for you, support you, encourage you to grow in grace and wisdom." He responded that he did have an "accountability group" in that case?" It's just that I call them my friends."
