Believing and receiving is synonymous in John 1:12 and Gal. 3:2.
A large part of being an overcoming Christian today, lies in loving, and obeying God, and loving others (1 John 5:1-5).
Revelation 3:1-6 We must overcome spiritual death through the Life-Giving Spirit.
We have been called together, not for a club, but for a purpose.
