What is required for Mormons to receive saving grace?


The Book of Mormon makes it clear that Mormons only receive grace after they do all they can do.
In the Book of 2 Nephi 25:23 it says:  (emphasis added)
"for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do."

Moroni 10:32 is the IF...THEN statement for grace: (emphasis added)
"... if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you"

The LDS published "Bible Dictionary" defines grace as: (emphasis added)
"grace is an enabling power that allows men and women to lay hold on eternal life and exaltation after they have expended their own best efforts."
