Does Fear of God lead to Love? I am confused with the relationship between fear and love in the most Holy Bible, please help. Also, how should we directly Love God?
1 John 4 17-18
"In this way, the love of God is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence on the day of judgment. For as he is, so also are we, in this world. 18Fear is not in love. Instead, perfect love casts out fear, for fear pertains to punishment. And whoever fears is not perfected in love. "
