Let me share to you this story of two brothers - who has been trained by their parents Adam & Eve to do something in this world according to what they like. Abel love the animals and he became a shepherd and Cain love the soil and he became a Farmer. We knew Adam and Eve disobey God once, but their love on God did not changed. They taught their sons to worship God as well.
Here comes the time of their worship. Abel being shepherd offered the best of his animal to God, and Cain who love the soil offers thing from his farm. The Lord was not pleased with Cain’s offering but was happy to receive Abel. Cain’s face was downcast and angry (Gen. 4-5). But God said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Gen 4:6-7.
What can you say about Cain and Abel? “The offerings of Cain and Abel were different. Cain showed a proud, unbelieving heart. Therefore, he and his offering were rejected. Abel came as a sinner, and according to God's appointment, by his sacrifice expressing humility, sincerity, and believing obedience (Heb 11:4). The end of this story was tragic, because Cain allows Satan to control him and eventually committed the first murder in the Bible.
The Bible repeatedly reminding us from Genesis to revelation – to not give sin a chance. But instead to resist it and live a holy life, to live in peace and harmony with one another, to live in love. “Therefore, do not let sin control your mortal body so that you obey its desires” Romans 6:12.
So how can we correct the wrong of Cain in the story? Let us learns from Abel’s life. He chooses to 22 “Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, (2 Tim. 2:22). He has shown deep respect and love, and worship to God. And in return the Lord was so pleased and accepted his offering. The Lord never change, He still the same yesterday and forever. (Heb 13:8). The God that worship Abel is the same God that we worship so ,If you do the things for God and It is the best from your heart God will always be delighted.
What can you say about God in the story? V6. God is the God of justice He will not let the wicked go unpunished (Proverbs 11:21). The Lord says if you do right will you not be accepted? Our is great provider, meditate this scripture, “However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" -- the things God has prepared for those who love him—1Cor. 2:9. When you gave Satan opportunity in your life, He will devour you, but when you let The Lord
Jesus Christ guide and led you, He will save and bless you”.
