And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For GOD, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the Name of the LORD. (Gen 4:16-17, 25-26)
Sin will take us farther than we want to go, keep us longer than we want to stay, and cost us more than we want to pay. Without the presence of GOD and His power to overcome sIn, we are consumed by its power, its presence, and for those who are not delivered by the blood of Jesus Christ, they will be consumed by its penalty.
We who know GOD through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and His Spirit within us don't have to give in to the power of sIn for we have His power within. But, we do have to deal with the presence of sIn and overcome it through the Word and our faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary that paid for our sIn. That is not a license to sIn more, but victory over sIn and GOD's ability within to overcome temptation. That is the message of hope and mercy that we must tell everyone we meet. As we go, we are to minister to the hurting, disciple one another in love and the Word, and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and the deliverance from sIn that only He can give.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that everyone would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with Him that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms, believing His Word, and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Receive Him by faith in what He has already done for you on that cruel Roman cross. He calls you to Himself, but gives you the choice, to call upon His Name for Salvation, or reject His free offer of forgiveness and depart from His presence.
