Knowingly Accountable

I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of quality, biblical training in my lifetime. It started at an early age and continued formally as I went through graduate studies. I love studying the Bible and seeing what God has done and continues to do in our world. I love seeing something I’ve never seen before.

And while knowing the Bible is important, it also highlights another truth. The more Bible you know, the more accountable you are. James says it is sin to know what you ought to do and not do it. Knowledge divorced from proper application of that knowledge is not biblical. That kind of accountability is frightening. Thank God for his grace and kindness when I fail to do what I know I should do.
