17Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
“if you do them” (all the teachings of CHRIST manifested in our daily life).
Intellectual perception is not enough, but must be backed up by commitment of life. This does not mean that our works are the basis of our acceptance by GOD, but that they are the evidence of a true faith. Trust and obedience are inseparable. Trust and obey GOD’s WORD will always bring blessings.
