We can't make God into a religion when He is a living being. Christ is our direct foundation, with no one in between us and Him. Only He has the power to save. Whatever path we're on, He will straighten it for us if we seek/love Him with all our heart.
We seek Him directly in thought and deed. We won't find Him if we just hide behind the scriptures all day. Only God can make the scriptures come alive to you because God lives! He gives life to all things! When we serve Him, He makes our work fruitful.
Give your time to Him (sacrifice) and talk to Him; meaningful time spent in the spirit of pure intent, worship, and praise. You may be surprised by what you find. Talk to Him throughout the day. Listen to Him. Council with Him. He wants us to repent and be willing to give up our will. We will struggle sometimes, and the world will hate you the closer you are to Him; but it won't be so bad because we will love God. We will find comfort in Him because He lives! He won't reveal Himself to us if we won't draw near to Him. He requires our whole heart; the goal is to get there, and He can show us how it is to be done.
I know God lives!
37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day. (Alma 37)
