- The offerings of Cain and Abel were different.
- Cain showed a proud, unbelieving heart. Therefore he and his offering were rejected.
- Abel came as a sinner, and according to God’s appointment, by his sacrifice expressing humility, sincerity, and believing obedience.
- Abel offered in faith, and Cain did not, Heb 11:4.
In all ages there have been two sorts of worshippers, such as Cain and Abel; namely, proud, hardened despisers of the gospel method of salvation, who attempt to please God in ways of their own devising; and humble believers, who draw near to him in the way he has revealed.
