And he said unto the children of men: Follow thou me. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, can we follow Jesus save we shall be willing to keep the commandments of the Father?
2 Thessalonians 1:7-8
7 And to you who are troubled arest with us, when the bLord Jesus shall be crevealed from heaven with his mighty dangels,
14 aWhat doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath bfaith, and have not works? can faith save him?
2 Peter 2:20
20 For if after they have aescaped the bpollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are cagain dentangled therein, and eovercome, the latter end is fworse with them than the beginning.
2 Nephi 28:8
8 And there shall also be many which shall say: aEat, drink, and be bmerry; nevertheless, fear God—he will cjustify in committing a little dsin; yea, elie a little, take the advantage of one because of his words, dig a fpit for thy neighbor; there is gno harm in this; and do all these things, for tomorrow we die; and if it so be that we are guilty, God will beat us with a few stripes, and at last we shall be saved in the kingdom of God.
James 1: 22-23
21 ¶ Not every one that asaith unto me, bLord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that cdoeth the dwill of my Father which is in eheaven.
62 No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
Once you have accepted Christ as your Savior, if you cease to do his work you are not fit for the kingdom of God.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the agraves shall bhear his voice,
29 And shall acome forth; they that have done good, unto the bresurrection of life; and they that have done cevil, unto the resurrection of ddamnation.
Those who have done good will be raised to life. Those who have done evil will be raised to death. Good things are those things which God has commanded us to do. This includes, but is not limited to, believing that Christ is the Son of God and our Savior.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, The Way of the Disciple, General Conference, April 2009
"It is not enough merely to speak of Jesus Christ or proclaim that we are His disciples. It is not enough to surround ourselves with symbols of our religion. Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessings of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes."
Doctrine and Covenants 1:10
10 Unto the aday when the Lord shall come to brecompense unto every man according to his cwork, and dmeasure to every man according to the measure which he has measured to his fellow man.
Elder Dallin H. Oaks, "The Challenge to Become", General Conference, October 2000
"The Apostle Paul taught that the Lord’s teachings and teachers were given that we may all attain 'the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ' (Eph. 4:13). This process requires far more than acquiring knowledge. It is not even enough for us to be convinced of the gospel; we must act and think so that we are converted by it. In contrast to the institutions of the world, which teach us to know something, the gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to become something."
"From such teachings we conclude that the Final Judgment is not just an evaluation of a sum total of good and evil acts—what we have done. It is an acknowledgment of the final effect of our acts and thoughts—what we have become. It is not enough for anyone just to go through the motions. The commandments, ordinances, and covenants of the gospel are not a list of deposits required to be made in some heavenly account. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a plan that shows us how to become what our Heavenly Father desires us to become."
This chapter lists the ten commandments, not the ten suggestions.
