God's blessings are contingent on your obedience: If we want God's blessings, we must obey Him. But don't forget, what He requires, He also gives through the Gospel. We see how we can be more obedient and that we need to remember that there is a connection between obedience and blessing. Because obedience leads to blessing, we should thank the Lord for what He has already taught us from His Law. If we obey, then we can expect that the Lord will bless us. Knowing that blessing comes from obedience, we should never be content with our current level of obedience.
