"As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name" (John 1:12)
To receive God’s free gift of love, we must receive His Son Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.'" (John 14:6).
We receive Jesus Christ by turning to God and asking Him to forgive our sins, and receiving Jesus Christ by faith as our Savior and Lord.
