"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Believe in Jesus Christ and you will be saved. This is a famous cliché among Christians. But, what do we mean by believe in Jesus Christ? We believe that Jesus Christ will take us to heaven, no matter what we do. Is it believe in Jesus Christ? Let me give an example of believing. Say, I tell someone that I will give him ten thousand dollars if he come to my office the next day at 8:00 AM. If he needed the ten thousand dollars and if he believed me, he would have come to my office the next day at 8:00 AM. This means that he has believed in me. If he did not show up, it means that he did not have belief in me. This is what believe means.
John 12:46 says: "I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness." Here, Jesus Christ is the Light. Believe on him, is to abide in the Light. But if we are in darkness, which is sin, then we do not believe in him, it is according to God. If we commit sin and say that we believe in Jesus Christ, our belief is fake. We may believe something about him, but we do not believe him. So, check it out, if we have sin in us, our belief is not on him, but on something about him. Jesus Christ tells what we must do to be saved or to inherit eternal life. So, if you believe Jesus Christ, do what he tells you to do for eternal life.
