Bible Challenge – Genesis 4

“You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” v.7 (NLT)

How do you react when someone suggest you have done something wrong? Do you move to correct the mistake of deny that you need to correct it? After Cain’s gift was rejected, God gave him the chance to right his wrong and try again.  God even encouraged him to do this! But Cain refused, and the rest of his life is a startling example of what happens to those who refuse to admit their mistakes.  The next time someone suggest you are wrong, take an honest look at yourself and choose God’s way instead of Cain’s.

Understand that sin is waiting to attack and destroy us. Like Cain, we will be victims to sin if we do not master it. But we cannot master sin in our own strength.  Instead, we must turn to God to receive faith for ourselves and turn to other believers to receive encouragement and strength.  The Holy Spirit will help us master sin. This will be a lifelong battle that will not be over until we are face to face with Christ.

Today, what sin have you let hang around to long without being mastered? Have others pointed out symptoms of this sin that you have ignored? Why not be done with it by confession it to God and then resisting it when the temptation come though the power of the Holy Spirit!
