Why be accountable?

Why should we have to answer to other people? Why is depending only on the television for church not o.k.? The answer to these questions is clearly laid out in Hebrews 3:

So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it's still God's Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn't slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we're in this with Christ for the long haul.
Hebrews 3:12-14 The Message

Do you have someone to keep you on your toes when it comes to spiritual things? I pray you do. Even though we may think we can stay on track without the help of someone to be accountable to, most of the time, regular time alone with God in the word doesn't happen by accident. Discipline is tough and there are lots of things tugging at us, diverting us from the living God. If you haven't done so already, ask God to lead you to a partner who can encourage you to stay on your toes. You can do the same for them. The results are amazing. I know. I have experienced them for myself.
