Edified And Multiplied

Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied. — Acts 9:31 (KJV)

This verse so intrigued me that I kept reading it over and over again. Looked it up in other versions and here it is in the KJV. A time of peace for the churches had come. Saul was no longer pursuing Christians. They were being built up, encouraged, moving forward in the work of the Lord. 

In that edification they were walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit. In this the church was multiplied. Makes me wonder if the church is walking in encouragement today — seeking the Lord in reverent fear and in the comfort and trust of the Holy Spirit. Is it possible to see the church multiply today?

How is your walk?

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
