So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. Acts 9:31
Saul, who had been persecuting the church was now one of the followers of the “Way”. Christ on the road to Damascus stopped Saul dead in his tracks and set him on a new mission. It was a mission of proclaiming the gospel, not persecuting it. As a result there was a season when the church was experiencing peace and being built up. They walked in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
May our faith journey be characterized by “walking in the fear of the Lord and the comfort of the Holy Spirit”.
Lord bring peace among your followers and build up the Body of Christ. We pray for the church world wide. May they find peace and relief from persecution so that the gospel will spread and as Saul was transformed may their persecutors be.
