By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain.
Abel’s sacrifice, in this first recorded “worship” meeting, was acceptable to God because it spoke of the Lord Jesus and His death at Calvary. Blood was shed, and the Bible says that without the shedding of blood is no remission (for sin). So God accepted Abel’s offering. Abel worshipped in a proper way. This is a pattern for us to follow. Our worship should center around the Lord Jesus and what He did on the cross. His death and shed blood provides a perfect, full, and free salvation - to those who believe in Him. And it thrills the Lord’s heart to see His own gathered around Him on Lord’s Day morning to remember His perfect sacrifice - the sacrifice of Himself.
