It's by God's Grace and Mercy that we enter Heaven

Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Titus 3:5-7
  - Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Galatians 5:22-23 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Note: We enter the Kingdom of God by His Grace and Mercy through our Faith. It's not from our good works where we could easily boast. If we believe and confess that He is LORD and ask for the forgiveness of our sins, then we will receive the gift of God which is Salvation (Eternal Life in Heaven).

It is the Holy Spirit that dwells in us after we receive Jesus Christ that produces Good Works. It is not us. And it is the Holy Spirit that transforms us to become more like Christ as we grow and mature in the Word of God.
