The birth of Seth was the beginning of the change of relationship with God and Man.  the key phrase was “At that time, people first began to worship the Lord by Name.”, this scripture is a mixed bag.  On the one hand, clearly Seth and his line realized God and his power, love and desire to relate to men.  They lived to please him–So different than Cain’s line–They simply became more independent and bitter about God.  On the other hand, God never wanted to be treated as a separated deity. The separation, by generation would become more obvious and isolating for God.  He created man to walk with and communicate with men. this while part of the overall plan, was sad for a loving father ad creator.

Today, that same Father–the one that sacrificed his most precious treasure, longs to be in an intimate relationship with us.  While he expects us to reverently follow him, as any father would, he is most concerned that we realize the barriers that separated us from him were destroyed at the cross.  We are called to be different from normal people.  We are chosen to be on a 1st name basis with him.  He loves us and grants eternal life to those who will accept it.  So, lets join Seth’s lineage in worshipping God, but lets do one better–lets continue the great relationship granted us as his children!

God Bless You

Up to that point, the relationship while strained, was an intimate one.  Back and forth communication directly with God, no barriers, no walls.  Sadly

25 Adam had sexual relations with his wife again, and she gave birth to another son. She named him Seth,[g] for she said, “God has granted me another son in place of Abel, whom Cain killed.” 26 When Seth grew up, he had a son and named him Enosh. At that time people first began to worship the Lord by name.
