Moses said to the people, “Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of Him may be before you, that you may not sin.”
Now that is true love if I have ever read it. He doesn’t want me to sin. He doesn’t want me to sin because He loves me, He knows how much my soul will suffer, wither, DIE if I continue in my sin. He loves me enough to test me, so that my soul may be most joyful in the Fear of Him alone.
And that is the truest of loves.
