Eternal life is a gift that overflows from God’s own abundance of goodness, not from any obligation of right.  This gift does not result from the dignity of our works, but from the magnificent bounty of the divine nature.   We can obtain it solely through the steadfastness of God’s promise:  the work of our creature services is profitless in eternal life.

From the book “Boundlessly Good”
