Sin is basically disobedience. God told Adam and Eve “Don’t,” but they “did,” and thus they sinned. Some argue that they are not big sinners, but every person has committed the greatest sin. What is the greatest sin? Disobeying the greatest commandment. Jesus identified it as, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” [Matthew 22:36]. No one has kept that commandment perfectly. We are all guilty, “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23].
When we come to Christ, God forgives our sins and cleanses them away. What He does is an amazing demonstration of His mercy. Read and meditate on these. You will be blessed.
