The first individual to be commended for his great faith among the witnesses is Abel. Indirectly, we know that Cain and Abel knew what kind of offering was acceptable. Abel would not have acted in faith unless he heard what God said (Rom. 10:17). “Otherwise it would have been by fancy, and not by faith; and there would not have been room, either for obedience on the one hand, or for disobedience on the other.”  Therefore, they were both held accountable for the way in which they chose to approach their offering to the Lord. Moreover, Cain was guilty for how he responded to his own way of dealing with his sin.
