OBEDIENCE – Key to Abel’s life

Abel was the second child born into the world, but the first to obey God.All we know about this man is:

1. his parents were Adam and Eve,
2. he was a shepherd,
3. he presented pleasing sacrifices to God,
4. his short life was ended at the hands of his brother Cain.

The Bible doesn’t tell us why God liked Abel’s gift and disliked Cain’s, but both Cain and Abel knew what God expected. Only Abel obeyed.Throughout history, Abel is remembered for his obedience and faith (Hebrews 11:4), and is called “righteous” (Matthew 23:35).

The Bible is filled with God’s general guidelines and expectations for our lives.

It is also filled with more specific directions.

Like Abel, we must obey regardless of the cost, and trust God to make things right

Thank you. Be blessed!
