BIBLE PASSAGE: 2 Samuel 12:1-15

1. And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.

2. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:

3. But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.

4. And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

5. And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:

6. And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

7. And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;

8. And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

9. Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

10. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.

11. Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

12. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.

13. And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

14. Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

15. And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.

INTRODUCTION: What is accountability?
(a) it is a state of being answerable or liable. (b) it is also an assurance that an individual or organization will be evaluated on their performance or behavior related to something for which they are responsible.

MEMORY VERSE: So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Romans 14:12

TEXT REVIEW: 2 Samuel 12:1-15
i. To whom much is given, much is expected.
ii. Grateful hearts are always accountable
iii. You need to know that all you have or can be is the handiwork of God.
iv. Accountability aids promotion from God and man.
v. There is always setback for believers who are not accountable.

LESSON OUTLINE
Characteristics Of The Divine Accountability.
Accountability before God cannot be compared to accountability before men or country. Read – Open Heaven 13 January 2019

It is possible to hide many things and go unnoticed in men’s accountability. The case of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5:1-11.

There are many loopholes in the men’s system and people that are knowledgeable use these openings to defraud the very system they swore to protect. Read – Rccg Fasting Prayer Points For 13 January 2019

However, not a little shall go unnoticed by God in divine accountability.

1. God is a spirit; (John 4:24) so you cannot deceive him by falsifying your records or lying.
i. Remember Cain that claimed he did not know his brother’s whereabouts whereas he had just killed him. Gen. 4:1-10
ii. God sent Prophet Elijah to pronounce His judgement on King Ahab and Jezebel in the killing of Naboth. 1 Kings 21:16-20
2. Our sins shall find us out. Numbers 32:23.
3. Luke 8:17 “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad”.
4. Revelation 22:11-13 “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Verse 12. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Verse 13. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last”.

SUMMARY: In all your ways acknowledge God and He will lift you up.

CONCLUSION: So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Romans 14:12. We are very indifferent to this all important aspect of our stewardship.

No matter our level of stewardship: driver, security, carpenter, caterer, usher, deacon, bishop, pastors etc we shall give account of our stewardship to the King of kings.

Brethren, Psalmist says “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”. Psalms 90:12.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention the danger of not being accountable.

PRAYER POINTS:

1. Father, please help me to do the needful while still alive to enable me reign with you in heaven.

2. Father, please do not ever withdraw your mercy from me.

3. Father, help me to give a good account of my stewardship before you.

4. Abba Father, help us in RCCG to make heaven and grant us the grace to take as many people as possible with us.

5. Our spiritual parents, Daddy and Mummy G.O. will make it to heaven on the last day in Jesus’ name.
