Scripture Reading: Genesis 4:8-12

"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit  before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18). From the beginning, God has  instructed man in the ways of righteousness; and from the  beginning, man has been free to comply with or to rebel  against God's expressed will. Between the first two sons of  father Adam, there existed a clear contrast. Abel elected to be  willingly obedient; Cain chose to "do it his way."

"Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the  ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain  brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord [a  boastful show of pride in his personal accomplishment]. And  Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof [an obedient act of humble submission to the specific  conditions set forth by God regarding sacrificial offering].

"And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering.  But unto Cain and to his offering He had not respect" (Genesis  4:2b-sa).

Failure to comply with God's specific will is in itself  unacceptable; but Cain compounded his offense with an act of  open rebellion-the wanton murder of his own brother as an  expression of resentment toward the very righteousness which  he had already openly defied.

With the knowledge of good and evil comes the ever-  deepening fracture marring the perfection of unity which  preexisted the Dispensation of Conscience, under which the  foregoing tragic drama was shamefully enacted.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
