Abel and Cain were Both Worshippers

Have you ever considered that both Cain and Abel were trying to worship God?

It’s not like Cain was out to glorify Satan on purpose. He was doing what he wanted to do “for God.”

So why was Cain’s offering rejected, and Abel’s accepted? Why did Cain end up a murderer, and Abel end up dead? What was the point?

From the beginning, God made it clear that it takes the shedding of Blood to cover sin. He killed an animal to cover Adam and Eve. Both Cain and Abel knew that.

Abel obeyed God and offered from his care of the flock.

Cain disobeyed God and offered to God from his work in the field.

God doesn’t need the works of your hands if you don’t participate in the care for His flock. The Slain Lamb will always be in his flock, and true shepherds feed the flock.

There’s a lot of being offered to God that God is completely rejecting, because those that offer it are rejecting the Lamb and disregarding his flock.

They esteem the works of their hands, their talent, their money making and fundraising ability above obedience to the Lamb and feeding His flock the exact food He gives in due season (John 21:16-17) (Luke 12:42-48).

Don’t be a modern day Cain, trying to offer God worship without the Lamb and His flock. We can’t give God what we want instead of giving Him what He asked for.
