Streak of Light

To Seth also a son was born, and he called his name Enosh. At that time people began to call upon the name of the Lord. –Genesis 4:26

Prior to Enosh’s birth, the recorded lineage was that of Cain’s. In just a few verses, we saw the quick corruption of the human heart, resulting into two murders in the family. Human kind was degenerating very quickly. What was Adam and Eve’s seemingly simple culinary blunder was now becoming more sinister.

But the moment Enosh was born, something good happened. People began calling upon the name of the Lord. While world history was turning dark, a streak of light appeared. A new generation of children feared the Lord. Grace was at work, setting aside a lineage of God-fearing men who will one day give rise to the Messiah.
