By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
The Bible is full of stories about faithful followers of the Lord. Most of these men and women were very plain and ordinary people.
But because of their extraordinary faith, God blessed and used them — like He did Abel.
The biggest lesson we can learn from the sacrifice of Abel is that he brought his best before the Lord, and he did so by faith. It’s important to remember that good works will never be the answer…nor will religion.
But faith — acting on our trust in what God says is true — is the key.
My friend, the Lord deserves your very best. Are you giving everything over to Him in your personal life, marriage, family, friendships? Are you offering it all up to Him by faith?
Lay your life on the altar as a sacrifice before God… by faith… so that you can be used by Him.
YOUR FAITH CAN DEMONSTRATE TO OTHERS THE WAY TO JESUS, THE WORSHIP OF JESUS, AND THE WITNESS OF HIS GRACE AND POWER IN YOUR LIFE.
