You received faith...

The word "received" is the Greek word "lachousin".

It means you "obtained by lot" your faith.

You didn't do anything to receive faith, 
You didn't work it up like person works up the courage to do something,
it was part of the package in your righteousness paid for by Jesus Christ.

The same goes for grace and peace...
It's unmerited and unearned!
The vehicle in which we receive our Father's Grace and Peace 
in the knowledge of HIM and of Jesus Christ!

It's in the knowledge of HIS love for you!

It's in the knowledge that you are righteous by the blood of Christ!
