Nobody gets to heaven by works alone (self-loathing, or always doing good, or going to church every week). A Christian is, by definition, Christ-like. Any amount of study of Christ's life will show that He spent his life serving others -- especially those that didn't deserve it.
There are plenty of Christ's own words urging us to throw off the bonds of slavery (sin) and follow Him -- to fear not. To think that after one is saved, one no longer sins is to truly miss what the Bible teaches about us humans.
