An Accountability Partner Can Help You!

Find accountability here! NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

In this journey we call life, it is wise to have others on your side. We are not meant to live as Lone Ranger trying to maneuver through the pitfall that comes up in life. You can choose to continue to struggle on your own, but it is not necessary, there are many people who love to walk alongside you. If you do not have a church that you attend right now, I encourage you to start at that point and find a good Bible-believing church to have them come alongside you, as well as you can be of help to others too.

Having an accountability partner in sexuality, or alcohol and drug abuse, or working out at the gym, budgeting money, and whatever specific personal needs a person might have. Having someone in your corner for encouragement and accountability is a very wise thing to have going for you. Often an accountability partnership can go both ways to help one another, which can be a win-win situation for you and a friend. Even if you are not going through major difficulties right now, as I already mentioned, it is wise to have someone on your side to help you maneuver through problems that come up in life. ~ Bill Greguska

Why Do I Need An Accountability Partner?


Accountability Partner?

Our first type of “accountability partner” would be that of our parents. After that, off it can be that of a big brother, big sister, cousin, friend, or even to an extent, coach, teacher, pastor, or even possibly a counselor. It is very wise to find yourself a mentor to bounce things off to understand better why you should or should not do certain things. A mentor has the experience (mileage in life) to know right from wrong.  (assuming that your mentor is a Christian). Sexual accountability can be very beneficial if you have someone you can trust. That is wise to direct you in the right direction—without accountability in sexuality areas, working out at the gym, alcohol, and drugs budgeting money. We all need an accountability partner.

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.




What Are Accountability Questions Designed To Do?

Below are some key Accountability questions you can ask yourself or have a mentor ask you. These are designed for small groups and mentoring for those from high school youth to seasoned adults. They are for men’s groups, women’s groups, and so forth.

Because of the number of questions, you need to choose three or four items each week. If there is a particular struggle area, add that one, too. Also, incorporate one of the critical passages above and spend significant time in prayer:

  1. Did you spend time with God through His Word, prayer, quiet time, devotions, and other spiritual disciplines?
  2. Did you pray for others this week?
  3. Are you satisfied with the time you spent with our Lord this week?
  4. Did you go to church or any other Christian fellowship related gatherings?
  5. Has your thoughts drifted away from the goals you have set up in your life?
  6. If so, how can your help to get your thinking back on track?
