Why we need accountability-discipleship

Each one of us will give an account of himself to God (Romans 14:12) that is why we need check and balance here on earth. In the same way, we should carry each other’s burdens, thus fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2). Personal accountability with fellow Christians is helpful in maintaining and strengthening a healthy Christian lifestyle (Ecclesiastes 4:12). Accountability also help us rebuke each other lovingly, that leads to daily repentance.
