And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life.

(1 John 5:11-13 AKJV)

It's more than just saying words.
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." (Matthew 7:21)

We must repent.
"I tell you, Nay: but, unless ye repent, you shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3)

It's a commitment.
"
And when He had called the people to Him, with his disciples also, He said to them, 'Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.'" (Mark 8:34-38)

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

2. God gives you a new life and attitude.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

"If you love Me, keep My commandments." (John 14:15) "Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Matthew 22:37-39)

4. You will love the church because Jesus loved it.

"Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God, which He purchased with His own blood."

5. You will be miserable if you are out of fellowship with Jesus.

"For whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and punishes every son whom He receives." If you endure discipline, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not discipline?
