Attainable vs Receivable

Category : Blogs (Faith), Life-Ecstatic (Faith)

Grace is not attainable – this is evident by the Gospel. You don’t deserve grace, and you don’t attain it in some means. Grace can only be received.

Likewise, is holy living attainable? Is the power of God to live holy, and live as Jesus, attainable? Is healing attainable?

We have been led to believe, through many teachings, that it in fact is. While people differ between whether perfection is attainable in this life (some say yes, some say no) perhaps the entire premise is wrong. Perfection is NOT attainable. The power of God is NOT attainable. Healing is NOT attainable. Holy living is NOT attainable.

It is only receivable.

And that makes things very different. That changes a heck of a lot of stuff.

Doesn’t it?

It does for me.
