Agreed. There is nothing we did, do, or could do that would incentivize Him to give us the gift that He graciously offers. But He, by His grace, offers us this gift with conditions. He commanded the conditions, not us. He said believe in me. He said confess My Name. He said repent of your sins and follow Me. He said be immersed to receive forgiveness of your sins. These are conditions He established to qualify us to receive the gift that He offers. Not the gift that we demand, or forced Him to offer. Nor do we pry it out of His hands by these actions. He said (not in these words, but the total message of Scripture is) if you will surrender your will to Mine, I will give you eternal life in Heaven with Me. But if you insist on having your own will, then you will spend eternity in Hell away from Me.No! It is a gift of God by His grace. There is nothing we can do to force His hand to give us His grace. It's all Him.
