Many believe in Jesus for salvation. They confess Him but further have nothing to do with Him. They do not know Him, love Him nor follow Him, but they think they have eternal life because they believe in Him. They are deceived. They will not have eternal life unless they find Jesus. 
Salvation is not just about believing in Jesus,  following a few steps and then being assured of eternal life. 
Jesus Christ  Himself is the way, the truth the life. He is alive and He reveals Himself to those who seek Him and obey Him. They are born again, become children of God, His sheep, who listen to His voice and follow Him.
Salvation is not about believing in the cross of Jesus.  It is about denying yourself, picking up your own cross and following Jesus every day, until the end.
Jesus gives eternal life to those who love, obey and follow Him. He said: “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” Luke 6:46. Believing in Jesus and confessing Him is of no value if we do not obey Him.
Many study the Bible but they do not obey Jesus, the words of Jesus, what He taught and commanded, as recorded  in the gospels,  Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  They follow the teachings and doctrines of their church and other people, but they do not obey Jesus. 
It is only when we obey the words of Jesus that He is revealed to us and comes and dwells in us. If you do not repent of sin, from the heart and stop sinning, turn from evil: if you do not  obey Jesus and be baptized in water, you will not be born of again. If you do not seek Jesus with all your heart, the Holy Spirit will not come and dwell in you.
Salvation is not a once off occurrence whereby you are guaranteed of eternal life. We have to follow and obey Jesus until the end. Jesus said: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:27,28. No one can snatch us out of His hand, but if we do not listen to, nor follow Him until the end, we will not have eternal life.
Salvation is Jesus,  not just believing, but obeying, knowing and following Him until the end. Without Jesus,  there is no salvation. Have you found Jesus,  and are you following Him, closely?
May Jesus bless you.
