The first murder of the history of mankind has occurred: Cain killed his brother Abel. The reason was because God accepted Abel’s offering only. It’s obvious that Cain also offered the sacrifice to God, but his offering was not received by God. What’s the differences between the two sacrifices?

Genesis ch 4 verse 3

It’s the start of the worship (offering) written in the book “Genesis.” Abel offered some of the firstborn of his flock while Cain offered some of the fruits of the soil as sacrifices. Both Cain and Abel might have given the sacrifices with all their hearts. However, God looked with favor on Abel and his offering only. Why? It’s because Cain offered the sacrifice with “his own way” that God did not want, but Abel offered the sacrifice with the blood of lambs according to the “Words of God” (Hebrews 9:22.) The Bible wrote that by faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did.

Hebrews ch 11 verse 4

The worship offered to God according to the Words of God like Abel is the one offered by faith and accepted by God.

Exodus ch 20 verse 8

The Sabbath Day Service is accepted by God. Jesus showed His firm will by keeping the Sabbath (Luke 4:16.) The apostles also kept the Sabbath of the New Covenant according to the Words (Acts 17:2.) Today, we also need to show an act to keep  the Sabbath day according to the Words of God. (As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead (James 2:26).)

Nonetheless, if you still keep Sunday Service made by men, you have no difference with Cain who offered the sacrifice  with his own thought. Following the worship that God does not want, is evil thing.

1 John ch 3 verse 12

Which sacrifice (worship) are you offering? The sacrifice of Cain? Or the sacrifice of Abel?
