The First Murder
Topic: Old Testament Scripture: Genesis 4:1–4:16
God made everything, and it was very good. Then we decided we would like to be God, we turned our backs on the Creator, and the world has never been the same since.
Chapter 4 of Genesis begins to describe for us a world that is now beset by evil and sin, and all their consequences. And it is not a pretty picture. Selfishness and pride sees brother turn against brother, and this very quickly leads to the first murder. Our selfish desires to have what we want, regardless of how it effects others, is now common.
Is there any hope?
In a world gone very wrong, God's plan to redeem a people for Himself is now to be unfolded. And it involves God being incredibly gracious.
