Last Sunday, July 19, 2015, I taught on Genesis 4:1-8, the story of Cain and Abel. I was amazed at the powerful truths contained in this brief story. We are presented with a beautiful picture of the gospel, of human freedom to choose salvation, and the power given to us to overcome sin! We can choose to submit to the rule of God in our lives, or the rule of evil. Satan has deceived us to believe that we can rule ourselves. Here are the basic ideas:
1. When we submit to God's rule, we come to him with humility, accepting his terms for forgiveness.
2. When we submit to God's rule, we choose to obey him by faith.
3. When we do not submit to God's rule, we will be ruled by evil.
