Personal Choices – Cain Had Two, We Have Two

There Are Only Two Choices In Life.

Romans 6:16. Most of us think we have many choices in life, but from God’s perspective we only have two. These personal choices include serving God or serving sin. One path is obedience unto righteousness to eternal life. The other path is sin unto death Romans 6:16, “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”).

Cain Made A Choice Not To Serve God.

Cain made a personal choice not to serve God. After he brought God an unworthy offering, God gave him an opportunity for him to come back to God with a worthy offering . But Cain chose to continue in his disobedience which eventually resulted in him murdering his brother. Cain made a choice to serve sin and not serve God.

Genesis 4:7,“If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.”

Our Personal Choices To Serve God or Sin.

Many of us think we have many personal choices. For example, when we get out of high school we can choose to go to college, go to work, get married, or even be a bum. But from God’s perspective we only have two choices. We can either choose to serve Him or to serve sin. We can make personal choices to steal, to commit adultery, to be prideful, envy, to be a glutton, or to be hateful. If our choices do not line up with the Truth (God’s Word), our choice is sin, sin unto death. If we obey the Word of God, our choice is obedience unto righteousness.

God’s Desire For Us To Serve Him.

God desires for us to love Him and to serve Him. That is all He wanted from Cain. He understands that we have a sin nature and it is our natural tendency to serve sin. That is why He offered up His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us from serving sin and to serve God. All we need to do is make the personal choice to acknowledge our sin nature, and accept Jesus Christ as our savior. The way of Jesus equips us with ability to serve God and have eternal life.
