A core belief of the Christian faith is a personal relationship with God in Christ. We find the early beginnings of the Judeo-Christian faith in Adam’s relationship with God. (1) God was Adam and Eve’s PROVIDER—residence, food, spouse– Genesis 2; (2) God is LORD over His creation. He makes the rules, not man. God held Adam accountable, exercised authority over Adam; (3) God is HOLY. He identified and punished Adam’s sin–Genesis 3; (4) God is worthy of WORSHIP, GLORY AND HONOR! . Cain and Abel brought offerings to God, worship–Genesis 4.2-4; (5) God is MERCIFUL. He shows mercy to Cain after Cain kills Abel. he spares Cain’s life –Genesis 4.15.
