God’s blessing of eternal, resurrected life depends on perfect obedience (Gal. 3:10–14). We trust in Christ and His obedience to receive this blessing, for we fall short of the glory of God. While the Lord blesses us in this life according to our obedience to His commands, this does not mean that we will be “successful” as the world defines that word. If we seek first His kingdom, however, He will no doubt bless us (Matt. 6:33).
