What commandment did God give Adam and Eve?

Mission Lab

God gave Adam and Eve a commandment to worship Him by an act of sacrifice: they were not to eat the fruit which grew on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

But Adam and Eve failed this test of obedience and trust in God by eating the forbidden fruit. They committed the first sin—the original sin. In this life, we prove our love for God by doing His will—being obedient to Him—and by keeping our covenant with Him—the New Covenant with man in Jesus Christ.
