How CAN we WALK with GOD 'DAILY'?
January 2 Bible Reading: Genesis Chapters 4-6
In God’s counsel to Cain in Genesis 4:7, God says that if Cain did well he would have been accepted as well. However, Cain did not do well as sin lay at the door of his life. Cain was entrapped by sin’s desire (James 1:14-15), which resulted that he offered to God a sacrifice that was not pleasing to God. So, the core problem in Cain’s life was the sin which controlled him. Even God’s final counsel to Cain that he should rule over sin (Gen 4:7b) was in vain and Cain killed his brother Abel in a fit of anger and jealousy. The tragedy in Cain’s life was his ultimate separation from God (Gen 4:16), and his disappearance from the pages of history. Let’s examine our hearts today if there is any sin in our lives that is not pleasing to God.
