With the death of Jesus we came under the new covenant, which predates the old covenant. Jesus is the Righteous King to whom Abraham gave tithe.
Under the new covenant Love is the commandment. Love God with all your mind, heart and soul and Love your neighbor as yourself.
What sin is, apart from Mosaic law, and was the law prior to Mosaic law, is anything you place before God - anything that violates "love" For every
man this is something different.. some men his wealth, some his pride, some his favorite thing.
We give these things up that God asks us to give up. Jesus made it easy, HE carried that burden for us on the cross. Through HIM and the spiritual
death to this world, we are able to walk away from the things that God asks us to walk away from - which HE will tell you personally what your sins
are after you are saved. He will say, "Don't do this, or you don't need that"
Those are your sins that you need to walk away from.
What God asks from us, is to put HIM first, Love HIM with all that you are, a life of moderation in all things, and Love your neighbor as yourself.
People will mess up from time to time, and if and when you do, you ask forgiveness and start again, and die the spiritual death to this world once
That is what Christianity is.
