Cain: #2

Dishonored God with the manner of his sacrifice
Got angry and depressed
Killed his brother
Did not take responsibility for his actions
Whined about the consequences
Walked away from God

At anytime God could have just went: ZZZZZZZZZIIIIIITTTTT and sizzled him right there.  God had every right and the power to end the line of Cain before it began.  God did not zap Cain right there.  Instead He offered grace.  He placed a mark on Cain so that no one would kill him.  He allowed him to have life, to have the comfort of a wife and son and  a new vocation. Cain was evil and did nothing to gain God’s favor yet Cain found grace in the eyes of the Lord. 

That is epic grace.
Grace that is above and beyond.
Amazing grace.

To be continued.
