It's good to be a Christ-follower, but you're saved by being a Christ-believer. John 6:66 reveals the tragedy of those who "followed" Christ -- were even called disciples -- but didn't believe in Him. Don't fool yourself into thinking you're saved because you've "surrendered your life to Christ". So far as salvation goes God isn't interested in what you've done, are doing, or intend to do for Him; He's only interested in whether you believe what He has already done.

* The sole means of receiving the free gift of eternal life is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, whose substitutionary death on the cross fully satisfied the requirement for our justification.
* Faith is a personal response, apart from our works, whereby we are persuaded that the finished work of Jesus Christ has delivered us from condemnation and guaranteed our eternal life.
