This is how it went:

I won’t!

Yes, you will. Someday you will stand before God and account for your life.

I won’t!

You are sinful, hypocritical, like all the rest of us. He is the just and holy God of the universe. You will have no choice.

I won’t!

You are not young. You are not particularly healthy. It may not be too long before you stand before Him.

I won’t!

But you aren’t even happy. What in your life is so much better than submitting to the God who made you?

I won’t!

Actually, you are right. You won’t be standing in God’s presence. You will be flat on your face before His glory and His holiness.

I won’t!

….and we still love each other.
