    If you wish to live, keep the commandments. If you would be perfect, forsake the sin and deceit of the world, and follow Jesus with all your heart. Do you want God? He is closer than your hands and feet, and His word is near, even in your mouth! But your sins have separated you from your God, and will sink you lower than the grave, if you don't repent and turn your life to seek the Lord in truth.
