Morning Coffee 8/2/15 A Matter Of The Heart Pt1
“It was by faith that Abel brought a more acceptable offering to God than Cain did. Abel’s offering gave evidence that he was a righteous man, and God showed his approval of his gifts. Although Abel is long dead, he still speaks to us by his example of faith.” (Hebrews 11:4 NLT)
Hello, Family, I have always wondered why God did not accept Cain’s offering of fruits and vegetables’. But accepted Abel’s blood sacrifice. It is a matter of the heart.
We know God does not Just do things willy nilly. There is an order and direction that. Must be followed. There must have been some instruction some direction given to Cain and Able. About they need to bring their sacrifice. The opening scripture says by FAITH Abel brought his sacrifice to God.
When we walk by faith we seek God we look and act on his direction. But how did Able get faith? “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 NKJV) Cain and able may not have had Gods written word, but I’m sure He spoke to them. No place in the bible does God say “Oh just throw something together and see what happens” No! God is about direction and order. When acting in Faith we will obey Gods direction.
Don’t miss part 2 tomorrow.
Much Love & God Bless
