Sermonette: Conditions for Blessings
Martin G. Collins
Given 03-Apr-21; 16 minutes
Tasting resembles testing or trying by experience. When people test God's promises, they come to appreciate the blessings which follow obedience to His laws. God promises His called-out ones blessings for following His precepts and curses for rejecting them (Deuteronomy 28). Faithfulness to His Covenant is an absolute prerequisite for a blessed life. Most of the blessing God's people receive today are spiritual, though physical blessings also accrue as they focus primarily on the spiritual. As God's called-out ones assemble for offerings on the Holy Days, they must reflect soberly on the cumulative spiritual and physical blessings God has graciously poured on them.
