Sometimes accountability may feel more like intrusion. But the intent of such intrusion is to bust up old paradigms, evict squatters from your mind, and PROVOKE you to act, move, and do in line with your purpose. This instruction will also PUSH you beyond limits and borders erected by everyone else (including you) but God.

Transformation cannot occur in the absence of accountability.

Who are you accountable to?

Abraham told his servant to stay behind while he pressed on to obey God's instructions concerning Issac (Genesis 22:1-19).

At the behest of God, Moses went up to Mount Sinai to receive instructions (Exodus 19:1-25, 24:9-18).

Paul didn't consult anyone immediately concerning the call upon his life (Galatians 1:15-17).

These examples show the active involvement of both man and God. They also reveal critical moments in the transformation process where we must walk alone. We can't bring anyone with us because the encounter is meant to be intimate. God wants our undivided attention.

Transformation requires participation, isolation, and concentration.

Encounter

Have you SEEN the Word? Have you SEEN Christ? Have you SEEN His glory? Have you truly come face to face with Him?

TRANSFORMATION requires an encounter.

"In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.... the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception)." John 1:1, 14
