324 anadéxomai (from 303 /aná, "up, completing a process" intensifying 1209 /déxomai, "to welcome/receive") – properly, receive up to the limit (maximum); (figuratively) to welcome with gladness (openness), i.e. full, personal interest (open-heartedly, enthusiastically).

[The high self-involvement (personal interest) motivating 324 (anadéxomai) accounts for why it is in the Greek middle voice on both of its occasions in the NT (Ac 28:7; Heb 11:17).]
