In Acts 9 just after the conversion of Paul, Luke says that the churches throughout all of Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified, “And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied” (Acts 9:31). First, it’s worth pointing out that the “fear of the Lord” and the “comfort of the Holy Spirit” go together, they’re friends. Second, when they’re together, the Lord multiplies the churches. Which means that what we all need around here is a little more of the right kind of fear and the right kind of comfort.
