“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” Romans 14:12
We seek to live a sinless life, not out of fear of having to give an account to God that shows we didn’t measure up to his holiness, but rather as a recognition of all he has done for us. We want to please him in the way we live so we choose a godly lifestyle and avoid the excesses of worldly behaviour. It’s a response of love. Our account to God is about the rewards we receive for the way we served the Lord.
