Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Augsburg Confession Article XX
Because the Holy Spirit is received by faith, our hearts are now renewed, and so put on new affections, so that they are able to bring forth good works. For thus saith Ambrose: “Faith is the begetter of a good will and of good actions.”

We don’t, and in fact, can’t earn salvation. Our acceptance by God is 100% based on the perfect life of Jesus and his bloody death in our place. His life and his death become ours by faith in Jesus. Even that faith is a gift! We have nothing to add to the cross and resurrection of Jesus. We don’t work to get God to love us. We work because He does love us. We don’t work to get Him to accept us. We work because through Jesus we are accepted. Our works are rooted in love, enabled by grace, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
