Cain and Abel: Overcoming Sin Before It Overcomes You (1 John 3)

Play

Preacher: Pastor Ray

Cain is mentioned in 1 John 3 and is used as a case study in darkness. Apostle John makes the shocking claim that the heart of someone who sees a brother in financial need and deliberately closes his heart to him is the same heart that hates a brother enough to murder him. Going a bit deeper, we need to ask, why did God reject both Cain and his offering in Genesis 4? The answer to this question highlights the one and only thing that Cain needed in order to overcome sin in his life. Sadly, instead of overcoming and mastering sin, he ended up being ruled by sin.
