Acceptance & Rejection
November 4, 2018
This familiar Bible narrative is often explored in the context of the different offerings of Cain and Abel. The text, however, does not focus on why God looked on Abel’s offering with favor and did not look on Cain’s offering with favor. Rather, the emphasis in the narrative is Cain’s reaction to being rejected by God. God’s response to Cain’s anger in having his offering rejected was to remind Cain when he does well before God, he will most certainly be accepted, but when he does not, he needs to guard against sin. Our message will look at how we handle acceptance and rejection by God, as we seek to navigate life today.
