Receive 

John 5:24  Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

It’s hard for us to receive anything we haven’t earned, worked for, or justified.  It’s especially  hard for us to wrap our minds around God’s free and saving love, much less receive His love and salvation in our hearts.  God asks us to receive His love in our minds and believe  in our hearts His love is for us.  This is the narrow path that leads to true life in Christ. We die to our egos that subscribe to the culture that requires we earn and work for our worthiness. We come to God in our unworthiness and receive His gracious and loving Son, who is our free and unearned gift from God for the salvation of our souls. It’s by God’s merciful love entirely.
