Genesis 4:1-7

Cain and Abel

Although Adam and Eve had rebelled against God, they continued to have a relationship with him. We see them give praise to God for the blessing of their children.

Two of their children, Cain and Abel, are pictured in the continuing tragic story of sin. God, knowing the heart of man, rejects Cain’s sacrifice given as it was with impure motives; he accepts Abel’s. God, whose heart is always towards forgiveness, issues a warning to Cain, lest his sin get the better of him.

In the story we see God’s intention to bring forgiveness and reconciliation to a sinful world.

Banished

Sin is embedded within human nature and experience. It is the choice we so often make. It is a choice with consequences. In today’s sermon, Andy looks at the consequences for Adam and Eve of their sin but also the hope that was to come.

Genesis 3:16-19

The Pain

God’s love of sinners in no way eliminates his hatred of sin. In today’s passage we see God continue to pronounce his judgment on the sin of Adam and Eve. We notice however how even within the judgment, God’s supreme love for his children is evident.
