The Spread of Sin & the Mercy of God (Genesis 4)

Main Point: Sin seeks to hurt you, but God seeks to help you. Will you receive his merciful help today?


  1. Sin Spreads (vv. 1–6)
  2. God Offers Help (vv. 6-7)
  3. Sin Worsens (vv. 8–24)
  4. God Offers Hope (vv. 25–26)


How can we receive help in our fight with sin?
  1. Admit your need for God.
  2. Ask for the Holy Spirit’s help.
  3. Answer God’s fatherly questions.
  4. Accept help. (The gospel, friends, counseling)
