The Attributes of God: the lawless insurrectionist vs the justice of Divine Sovereignty

“Eternal life is a gift, therefore it can neither be earned by good works, nor claimed as a right (Ephesians 2:8-8)....He refuses none who come to Him empty-handed and in the way of His appointing....Is God obliged to force His gift on those who value it not?
Is God compelled to save those who are determined to go their own way?"...That grace cannot be earned or won by any efforts of man is too self-emptying for self-righteous....A lawless insurrectionist dares to call into question the justice of Divine sovereignty.” 

~ Arthur Pink, "The Attributes of God"
