A True Beginning – How To Get Away From Murder (Genesis 4:1-16)

Genesis 4:1-16 - How To Get Away From Murder


Cain and Abel bring an offering to the Lord, showing the condition of their hearts, and Cain decides to murder his brother.


Genesis 4:1-16     Luke 11:50-51     Hebrews 11:4     James 1:15     2 Timothy 3:16-17     1 Peter 4:10     1 John 3:12


God repeats His pattern here of compassionately confronting the sinner. He did so with Adam and Eve. He would do so again, famously, with Saul of Tarsus. There are other examples. And so, again,  we see just how immense is God’s compassion. He has love and mercy for murderers. Even a man like Cain, who disdained God so much, was not beyond the extent of God’s grace.
