Why do good people lack blessings in life?

Jesus says, "If you love Me, obey My Commandments" (John 14:15)

For example, if you obey 40% of God's Commandments, it may mean that you love God 40% and you may receive only 40% or may be up to 60% of blessings from God because of His grace, for your sins block God's blessings from coming to you.

If you obey 90% of God's Commandments, it may mean that you love God 90% and you will receive 90% of blessings from God. (Is.59:1-2) Even then, you are leaving 10% of loophole for the devil to attack you with various problems.

This is the reason why many Christians too lack blessings in life. We should understand this important key. There is no other easy way or short cut to receive blessings from God except by obeying His commandments.

Rewards when you obey Jesus' Commandments...

  • Greatness in Heaven ...Obey Jesus' Commands and be great in Heaven. (Matt.5:19)
  • Fullness of joy... "Keep My Commandments so that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." -- Jesus (Jn.15:10-11/KJV)

Fear God & Keep His Commandments

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter;

Fear God and keep His Commandments,

for this is the whole duty of man.

(Eccl. 12:13)

All the evil that is happening on earth is due to lack of fear of God in man who dares to disobey God's commandments. As a result, there is so much of...

  • violence, bloodshed, murders, wars everywhere,
  • no value for human life,
  • high crime rates, robbery, racial riots,
  • drunkenness, revelry,
  • sexual immorality, marital problems,
  • lust for power, pride, selfishness,

All these problems which we are currently facing in the world are due to disobedience to God's commandments.
