Genesis 4 A Tale of Three Sons

Genesis 4

Three Sons

CAIN

• worker of the ground (v 2)
• brought “an offering of the fruit” (v 3)
• the Lord had no regard for Cain’s offering (v 5)
• Cain was very angry (v 5)
• Cain killed his brother Abel (v 8 )
• became a fugitive and wanderer (v 12)
• had a son Enoch (v 17) – Irad – Megujael – Methushael – Lamech

ABEL

• keeper of sheep (v 2)
• brought the firstborn of his flock (v 4)
• the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering (v 4)
• killed by his brother (v 8 )

SETH

• had a son named Enosh (v 26)
• people began to call on the name of the Lord (v 26)

👉 Cain did not make God a priority in his life. He was selfish with his offering, envious of his brother, and angry at the whole situation. By not putting God first, Cain opened the door for all kinds of evil.

Have a great day, friends. You are loved.

Genesis 3 The Serpent Enters the Scene

Genesis 3

The Serpent 🐍

• is crafty (v 1)
• tests our knowledge of God’s Word (v 1)
• will lie to us regarding the consequences of our sin (v 4)
• wants us to question God’s motives and his goodness (v 5)

Sin Causes Us To:

• hide from other people (v 7)
• hide from God (v 8 )
• feel fear (v 10)
• feel shame (v 10)

Consequences of Adam and Eve’s Sin:

• the marital relationship was directly affected (v 16)
• man’s work became harder to carry out (v 17-18)
• death entered the picture (v 19)
• man is blocked from the tree of life (v 24)

👉 Do you want some good news? For those in Christ – one of the blessings for those who endure is found in Revelation 2:7 and directly reverses the curse of the fall.

The enemy wanted Adam and Eve to question God’s heart but, even after their disobedience, God covered their shame and did not leave them in their nakedness (v 21).

Go out there and love on someone today, friends!

Genesis 2 When God Breathes

Genesis 2

Fun fact: Genesis 2:7 is one of my favorite verses. Not in a – engrave it on a coffee mug way – but in a – I can’t wrap my mind around it way.

We were handmade by a holy God and then – as if that weren’t enough – he breathed God breath right into our lungs. Man was made but he didn’t live until God breathed.

In Ezekiel 37 – there’s a valley of dry bones – death. There were many of them and they were very dry. They had been dead a long time, y’all. And all it took for those dead bones to live again was for God to breathe again.

And then – stay with me – generations later in an upper room terrified disciples were hiding after Christ’s crucifixion. Jesus walked into a locked room and filled them with the Holy Spirit by – are you ready – breathing on them.

Sit with that for a minute.

God breath brought life in Genesis.

God breath brought new life in Ezekiel.

God breath brought renewed life in John.

Whatever we are dealing with – no matter how dry the bones – no matter how great the fear or shame…

All it takes is for God to breathe and everything changes.

{I’ll post an up close shot of the notes for this chapter in my stories.}

Happy Friday, friends.

Genesis 1 In the beginning…

Genesis 1

We’re taking it way back, y’all. All the way to the beginning.

In the beginning, God…

And so our story begins. Aristotle called God “the uncaused cause.” He’s the uncreated Creator. Always was, always is, always will be. He’s ever present, ever faithful, ever the lover of our souls.

Three Takeaways to Ponder Today:

👉 God’s Word holds power and authority (v 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 28.)

👉 All that God does is good (v 4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31.)

👉 God is creator of man (v 27) and provider for man (v 29).

{Don’t forget – when you read super familiar passages – take your time! Read slowly. Read each word. Read aloud. There’s ALWAYS something new to discover in God’s Word.}

Y’all are loved.
