Is sin so hard to overcome?

Sin is to purpose to disobey God. It does sound simple when said this way. Sin is nothing more than disobeying God. It is hard to follow the rules when you donít know or understand the rules. The main rule to overcome sin is to Love the Lord your God above all things. If you canít do this then you are in for a long haul. The second rule to overcoming sin is to love your fellow man more if not as much as you love yourself. To really overcome sin you have to really understand these two commandments. Once you have a firm grip on these two rules, than you are on your way to overcoming sin.
We donít even have to try to be selfish or mean to each other. It just comes out of us so easy. But do we purpose to do such things? The Bible tells us that we are all sinners and imperfect in all things. But we donít have to purpose to be ungrateful for the things of God. God has given us as believers the ability to know right from wrong, to feel his love for one another, to have a heart for others eternal state. That is what life here is really about isnít it? To learn the truth and to share it with as many people as we can? But what is the truth? Why are we here? What does God want from us? Some would have you to believe that God is to complex to understand. That you must just believe that you are saved and leave the rest to fate. Well, as you may have guessed, I do not take that position. We are called by Christ to be ambassadors to the truth. That means, that in order for our brothers here on this planet to accept salvation they need to hear the truth from those who know and understand it. But what is the Truth. I can answer that very simply by saying the truth lies in scripture (the bible). But after reading and studying for the past few decades I have found that the more I read the more I learn, and I believe that when I learn something new, I want to share it with as many people who will listen to me. This is an ongoing process in my life. I am always talking with my wife about the wonderful things that God teaches me everyday. As you get to know God, you get closer to him and love him as you would your own father. For he is your father, your creator, you are his child. And as all children there is an unconditional love for a parent and their child. As we develop this relationship with our heavenly father we cease to desire to offend him. And we cease to purpose to sin. In fact he starts to remove temptation so that we will no longer have to fight those desires at all. He starts to bring us into his fold and allows us to start teaching others what he has taught us. Sin is not so hard to overcome. Just have a desire to know who our God is. Our Father in heaven.
