107 truths about God, the world, and you.
14: Sin is thinking you don’t need God.
Everyone who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God.
1John 3:4 NLT
Sin. The simple breaking of God’s law. Putting out of order the things He put in order, beginning with: Do not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Do not lean on your own understanding. Do not judge for yourself what is right and wrong.
God alone knows right from wrong, good from evil. Breaking His order of authority, breaks our relationship with Him. In breaking relationship with Him, we too become disordered from the inside out.
The crown has fallen from our head; woe to us for we have sinned. For this our heart has become sick, for these things our eyes have grown dim.
Lamentations 5:16-17 ESV
Embrace your “self” as wrong on all counts, so He can begin to make you right.
