We are saved by Grace through Faith. No man has the capacity to pay for His salvation. Salvation is a gift we must receive by faith.
Ephesians 2:8 AMP:For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;
God through His unmerited Love for us gave up Jesus (Grace) to pay for our redemption, He carried with Himself on the cross our sins, He paid the ultimate price using Himself as a sacrifice. Jesus was without sin yet He sacrificed Himself for us while we were yet sinners. Jesus could have refused to give up Himself up for us, but whenever He remembers the unconditional love of the Father towards us that we should be saved, restored back to righteousness (the will of God), He surrender Himself to obey the will of the Father.
John 3:16 NIV:For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
As if that wasn’t enough, He sent the Holy Spirit to us to convict us, Helping us believe in Him as THE WAY (CHRIST, THE PROMISED MESSIAH). John 16:8 NIV:When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment
1 John 3:1 KJV:Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
All you need to do is to accept Jesus, believe in Him as Christ! God won’t force you to, He respect the choice you make but it’s for your own benefit (Deu. 30:19) God doesn’t need us to be Himself but we need Him to be saved.
