There are many things to admire about the early church as described in the book of Acts. They cared for each other's needs, lived as a community and grew in the Lord. Another one of their successes is depicted in Acts 9:31b "The believers were walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit". This verse struck me with its simplicity and challenge. I feel like I personally lose some of the fear of the Lord because of the comfort and connection we can get through the Holy Spirit. But, both are needed to balance each other out and to treat God as he should be.
