“Someone died for this slightly off-base irritating brother. He is Abel offering his blood sacrifice, and love says I count his offering as sufficient.” From the book Grace in Community by Jim McNeely I wanted to return to the very powerful and fruitful story of Cain and Abel as it pertains to the idea of []

At first, its name looks like a misprint. Abel-beth-maacah. (Try saying that 10 times fast.) Located in the north of Israel near Dan, it served a vital role in watching over the northern entrance to Israel. (Photo: Abel-beth-maacah. Courtesy of the Pictorial Library of Bible Lands) As a result, Abel-beth-maacah often found itself one of the first cities to suffer destruction during the foreign invasions of Ben-hadad of Aram and Tiglath-pileser of»

About a year ago a friend invited me to screen Abel's Field in Albuquerque New Mexico at the film studios there.  A few months later I found myself sitting at Universal Studios with a crowded room of people watching this latest parable set to film.   What a great film!!   Set in a small town in Texas, Abel's Field is the story of a HIgh School student just trying to make it through the hardships of life.  As he tries to figure out how to put»

I heard this on a Coral Ridge podcast, and it was so good I wanted to pass it along. I can’t figure out who is speaking but it is an episode entitled “In the Beginning Grace Part 13″. It doesn’t sound like Tullian Tchividjian, but whoever it is, it is worth your while to hunt it down and give it a listen! WOW! In Genesis 4, we find this: 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7 “If you»

photo by by Christian Bucad: Creative Commons What was the first thing that Adam and Eve did after they sinned? They both denied it. What did Cain do when confronted with his murder of Abel? He denied it. And what do we do, when marriage puts a spotlight on our sin? All too often, we play the same game and deny it, too. Men get caught in a pornographic web, their wives catch them, but instead of coming clean and confess it, they are too quick to»

Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. But Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but [...]

God’s leading is often strange. That’s because He doesn’t share the plan. He keeps it a secret. We want God’s plan so we can trust the plan. God hides the plan so we will trust Him. (Photo by Tom Butler, courtesy of oomf.com) Genesis began with God blessing all He created. But the fall of man, Abel’s murder, the rebellion at Babel, and the global flood gave cause to doubt that there would be any recovery of that blessing. Genesis 3–11»
