What I Learned Clearing a Fence Row

By Scott Pauley | May 23, 2017

Over the last few months we have been clearing a fence row around our new home. The underbrush was thick and the work was slow going. Thanks to my dad’s tractor and my father-in-law’s chain saw some progress has been made, but the work continues! One afternoon, covered in brush and perspiration, the truth of it all came home to my heart. Jesus loved to teach in the outdoors. And He used whatever was at hand as an object lesson. He still does. The physical often reflects a deeper spiritual reality. As I stood looking at the thorns and briers, the Holy Spirit said, “This is your heart. It gets overgrown with the underbrush of life, the debris of this…

Go East Young Man!

By Scott Pauley | May 20, 2017

Our culture is obsessed with the ability, beauty, and virility of youth. Somehow in all of this obsession we have forgotten the wisdom of age. Young people miss the examples of parents and grandparents. Young couples fail to draw from the experience of more mature married couples. Young ministers often reject the insight of seasoned pastors. The mantra is the same, “They are from another generation…they wouldn’t understand.” This is a lie of the devil. Listen to the words of Scripture… “Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee” (Deuteronomy 32:7). “With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding”…

Free Resource: Help for the Daily Devotional Life!

By Scott Pauley | May 15, 2017

Are you spiritually fit? Spiritual health does not come on accident – it is a product of purposeful disciplines. In recent days the Lord has taken me again to the words of 1 Timothy 4:6-8, If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou has attained. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.  Isn’t it interesting that the same two elements that are necessary…

Some Thoughts On Our Recent Campaign

By Scott Pauley | May 12, 2017

It is a joy to be home for a couple of days after a busy season of meetings. Just a few days ago we conducted a Go Reach America Campaign in the Tri-Cities region. The Lord blessed in a wonderful way and we give Him the glory for it! As I have had some time to reflect I wanted to share a few things the Lord did in my own life. He always works on both ends – saving souls and teaching us! Here are a few of the truths the Holy Spirit has impressed on my heart… It is a privilege to labor with others for souls. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “Two are better than one; because they have a…

A New Resource Available this Month!

By Scott Pauley | April 27, 2017

Each month this year we are offering a free resource to help encourage Christians and churches. These tools are designed to encourage prayer, Bible reading, witnessing, and personal ministry to others. I hope you will use them and pass them along! This month’s resource is a little different. It is not downloadable, but will be available at no cost to you. Several months ago I wrote in my private journal a simple prayer concerning the Word of God. With the help of some precious friends we have taken those thoughts and created a beautiful devotional bookmark. On the back of the bookmark you will find 7 simple suggestions on how to read the Word of God more effectively. It can…

Family Vacations

By Scott Pauley | March 31, 2017

In a few weeks school will be out and summer will be in full swing. This is the time of year that young people (and their parents!) begin counting the days until vacation. Like many of you, we are planning a few days away with family and look forward to the time together. As a boy so many wonderful memories were made on family vacations. They did not have to be long or expensive trips – it was just the fact that we were all together, away from the normal routines and demands of life. Just this week a young father who serves in ministry told me how excited he is about a special family vacation that is upcoming. It reminded…

One of the Most Helpful Chapters I Have Ever Read

By Scott Pauley | March 21, 2017

Are you facing any decision right now? In need of guidance? Searching for direction? Almost two years ago I came to a crossroad in my life. We all make many decisions every day, but there are seasons of decision-making that alter the course of our own life and the lives of others. These are critical moments. Reflecting back on that period there are many things that I realize the Lord used to guide me into His will. Day after day my prayer was, “Lead me in a plain path” (Psalm 27:11). He answered that prayer. Wise counsel. Divine confirmations. Peace. Answers to prayer. Specific Scriptures. The Holy Spirit used all of this and more to direct my steps. Outside of…
