"...they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Moses, 'Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.'"
Believe that God is on your side and that He will deliver you. You can anchor your faith in that because you have a Mediator, Christ Jesus, the one Moses points us to. Our sin is enough to justify our destruction, but all of us in Christ know that God’s wrath was poured out onto Jesus at the cross instead. God sees us as having Christ’s righteousness. Now we can draw near to God, hear His words, and have hope that banishes fear.
"PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR, BECAUSE FEAR HAS TO DO WITH PUNISHMENT. THE ONE WHO FEARS IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE."
