Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

– Genesis 4:8-9 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Things went from bad to worse after the rebellion of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Their children became the first recorded case of domestic violence and murder. The sins of humanity keep getting worse as the story progresses, but we also see a stream of God’s redemption. That stream eventually becomes rivers of living water in Jesus Christ. Jesus became the ultimate brother’s keeper to all of us.
