Being a Christian isn't just a matter of getting eternal life.  A Christian isn't simply a person who's forgiven and going to Heaven.  A Christian, in terms of his or her identity, is a saint, a spiritual born child of God, a divine masterpiece, a child of Light, a citizen of Heaven.   

Being born again transformed you into someone who didn't exist before.  The point isn't what you receive as a Christian, but who you are ... who you have become.  It isn't what you DO as a Christian that determines who you are ... it's WHO you are that determines WHAT you DO

1 Peter 2:9  AMP ...You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God's own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light.  

1 John 3:1,2  AMP ... See what an incredible quality of Love the Father has given, shown, bestowed on us that we should be permitted to be named and called and counted the children of God!  And we are!  The reason that the world does not know, recognize, acknowledge us is that it does not know, recognize, acknowledge Him Beloved, we are even here and now God's children.  It is not yet disclosed, made clear, what we shall be hereafter, but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall, as God's children, resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He really is. 

Reverend Robert W. & Mary C. Butler
