Heroes: By Faith Abel

Illustration: Hall of fame, the centerpiece of the building are the sculptures of each player.

As we walk into the hall, the first hero we approach is an unlikely person that I do not think we would expect to begin with. The record for Abel is:

By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. (Hebrews 11:4)

To understand why Abel is one of our heroes of faith, it is important for us to read the original story concerning Abel. We do not get to know much about Abel. Only one event of Abel’s life is recorded and it is that one event that brings about his death. Turn to Genesis 4:1-12.
