God’s Promise Arrives as a Pure Gift
Here’s how to receive it
When you receive a gift the keyword is ‘receive.’ You don’t work for a gift, earn a gift, beg for a gift, demand a gift, manifest a gift, or finagle a gift. You simply receive it. But human nature — particularly for those of us who are hard-wired to earn or prove our worth — drives us to think we have to work for what the Bible says is already ours in Christ.
