10. Welcome and receive [to your hearts] one another (AMPC)

The key word is receive (Greek proslambano), which means to take to oneself. Its root indicates strong action toward us–that in Christ, God literally came to us and took hold of us while we were still sinners (5:8). By that act of acceptance, He released the grace of God and set in motion the powers of redemption. (Note on vs 7 Spirit-Filled Life Bible)

God makes no distinctions between one man and another (Acts 10:34 Weymouth New Testament)

Christ did not receive us because we were perfect, because he could see no fault in us, or because he hoped to gain somewhat at our hands. Ah, no! But, in loving condescension covering our faults, and seeking our good, he welcomed us to his heart; so, in the same way, and with the same purpose, let us receive one another. Spurgeon
