Across various Christian religions, some profess salvation requires God's Grace plus works while Others believe God's Grace alone will deliver you to heaven.
By reading the bible, we find that Jesus is certainly capable of saving us alone through his Grace.
Let's start by ruling out what we can't do: We can't do good works to get to heaven. We are all born sinners and will never be able to make it on our own into heaven. In the era of the Law, the Jews had to follow the commandments plus orthodox traditions to please God, but in the church age we must trust that Jesus did all of the work for us.
It is Grace+Faith alone that will allow us to enter heaven, since Jesus did all of the work.
However, the bible points out that we should bear good fruit, and do good works to set an example for other Christians once we are saved.
We should strive to be more perfect Christians.
hate your life in this world to keep it for eternal life (Jn. 12:25), continue to do the will of the Heavenly Father to live forever (Mt. 7:21; 1 Jn. 2:17),
Sow to please the spirit Gal 6:8, Do what is to be righteous Jn 3:7,
keep making an agonizing EFFORT to enter Gods kingdom doors for many who try will not enter (Lk.13:23,24), stand firm
through hatred to the end to be saved (Mt. 10:22).
The fruit of the Spirit of God is “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control”. You should strive to emit those characteristics, to avoid being thrown in the lake of burning fire. How will you smell to God, when he walks through the garden and smells your soul? Will it be sweet smelling fruit? (Bear Good fruit or be thrown into the fire Mt 7:19)
For if your life is just about satisfying the impulses of your sinful nature, then prepare to die.
But if you have invited the Spirit to destroy these selfish desires, you will experience life. (Romans 8:13)
Forgive others who sin against you so that your sins can be forgiven (Mt. 6:14,15) and so you wont be accountable once again for your previously forgiven sins (Mt. 18:21-35).
