Sobering Thought

What is the most sobering thought that ever entered your mind?

“My personal accountability to God.” –Daniel Webster

Our Founding Fathers came together from different backgrounds, including different faiths, and acknowledged that this country had to be different.  They had to see what drove them from their home country, caused them to sacrifice all that they had, allow their families to suffer all they did in order to establish a free land.  A place where all could be.  No, we weren’t perfect from the beginning.  Yes, they were blind to their own hypocritical actions.  But their desires were right, as the seven principles show us.

Principle # 1 -The Dignity of Human Life

Principle #2 -Traditional Monogamous Family

Principle #3 – National Work Ethic

Principle #4 – Right to a God-Centered Education

Principle #5 – The Abrahamic Covenant

Principle #6 – Common Decency

Principle #7 – Our Personal Accountability to God!

And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this is judgment. –Hebrews 9:27

I believe Daniel has it right.  Personally, if there is anything I worry about, it is that.  I have to answer for every decision, action, and word that comes from me.  More frightening to me to the decision, action and word and does not come from me I have to answer for!  Most frightening is any teaching I share that I believe to be true and right but God informs me was wrong, not because I made a mistake, but because I have misled someone else.  That would make me a false prophet.  I pray God checks my heart in those times and gives me points for trying.  But I digress.

All of you reading this, check your hearts.  Check your relationship with God.  Check your understanding of the Bible.  Make sure you’re putting no mans interpretation ahead of His words.  Make sure you’re honest with yourself about the condition of your relationship with God.  None of us knows the moment of our personal accountability, but we all know that when it comes, it is forever, for eternity.


Let me tell you who I'm not. I'm not a Pastor or trained religious scholar. I have no degrees that declare me qualified; I have a God who makes it so. So, how can I write about Christ? How can I teach, preach, evangelize, share or testify? I am doing nothing more than answering a call from God. I am a woman of faith, a nobody, as a current song espouses, who wants to tell everybody about somebody. I want to share my personal insights into God and the Gospel, the Good New. I want to share the hope that is given to us and share the unbelievable gifts of grace, mercy and forgiveness that is given so freely with the birth, death, resurrection and acceptance of God's son, Jesus Christ.

  1. I agree. I pray to God almost daily that he will not allow me to share something that is not his truth, although I may fail sometimes this is my hearts cry to God. You had asked a question at the beginning of your blog. My most sobering thought so far has been, that even when I believe I have not sinned, I am still a sinner…Only through Jesus Christ have I been had whole. Thanks for posting.
