“We need have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly.  His perfect love for us eliminates all dread of what He might do to us.  If we are afraid, it is for fear of what He might do to us, and shows that we are not fully convinced that He really loves us.  So you see, our love for Him comes as a result of His loving us first” 
1 John 4:18-19 TLB

So many people fear God.  I used to.  I mean God is God and doesn't like sin. He’s so powerful.  What is a person to do?

Believing and trusting God (faith) and that He loves us, that’s what we can do.
We cannot trust God unless we know that God is at peace with us. 
God proved His love for us at the cross by satisfying all wrath, so we would never have to fear God’s wrath, anger, and judgment.  God sent his Son Jesus to take our place and pay for our sins (1 John 4:10).  Jesus experienced the rejection of God so we could be assured that God accepts us.

Jesus took all the wrath and judgment that was meant for you.
So, no fear!  Believe and trust in His love.  God loves you so very, very much! 

Many blessings,
