God loves His word prayed back to Him. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that HE gave HIs only begotten Son. Jesus, that WHOSOEVER Believeth in Him, should not perish, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. Gods word. AMEN. John 3:18 AMEN John 10:28-29 AMEN Gods word. John 6:47 Gods word. AMEN. 

First John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that BEIEVE on the name of the Son of God, that ye may KNOW YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. AMEN. 

Romans 3:26-28 For He is the just and the justifier of them that BELIEVE in Jesus. Where is boasting then? You can not boast in free.

There will be no boasting in heaven. Matthew 7:21-23
