We are accountable for everything we say and do. Every little thing. We might think we are doing awesome and keeping all the laws, but here is the thing: we are human, so we can’t. We are going to screw up. We are going to need to ask God for forgiveness. We are going to need to lean into Him. We are going to need to ask Him for what we want; unconditional love and acceptance and eternal life.
And the blessing is He will give it to us when we are accountable. He will do what we really want and need because what He really wants is for us to come closer to Him. He wants us to tell Him everything. The highs the lows the needs the wants the worries the exultations. All of it. He wants it all. He wants each one of us.
Oh, how I love knowing that I am that wanted! How about you? Doesn’t it feel good? Doesn’t it make you want to be accountable?
