Jesus healed 10 leapers. Only one came back to thank Him. Were the other nine healed? Yes. So are we healed whether we are thankful or not. The GIFT of God is eternal life. John 3:18. We should be thanful that He paid our sin debt in full so we can never be condemned again. Romans 6:23. 

I thank God every day that my sin debt is paid in full so I do not have to go to hell to pay for my sins. John 3:18. 

I thank God everyday for John 3:16. For God so loved me that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, that when I believed in Him I should not perish but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. 

I have had eternal life for 75 years. I know where I am going when I die. First John 2:2 And He is the propitiation for my sins and not for mine only, but for the sins of the whole world.

But, only those who believe it are saved. Acts 16:31. John 6:47.

The GIFT of God is eternal life because no one can earn it. Romans 11:6. Romans 4:5.

Romans 3:26-28. There will be no boasting in heaven.
