1 John 3:12 - Not as Cain who was of the evil one and murdered his brother
- and why did he murder him? - because his own works were evil, but his
brother's were righteous.

Cain was unwilling to do things God's way. He brought to God what he
thought would be acceptable to worship with, but God corrected him (Genesis
4:3, 7). However, Cain refused to listen to and obey God. Instead, he was
angry with his brother, because his brother was righteous and accepted by
God. His envy and jealousy was bigger than his desire to be right with God.
Cain chose rather to submit himself to the rebellion and stubbornness of
Satan, the evil one. As a result, the natural love of one brother for
another was displaced with hate - a hate that would compel Cain to murder
his brother. Just like Satan, Cain was not willing to remain in the truth,
and he became a murderer and a hater of those who were righteous (John
8:44).
