A Special Announcement

We are very happy to announce that at the end of this month the Fundamental Broadcasting Network will begin to carry our Enjoying The Journey daily broadcast. FBN began in 1988 through the faithful ministry of Pastor Clyde Eborn. Their reach has continued to grow through the addition of terrestrial stations, affiliate stations, internet radio, and an instant audio phone line. They now have known listeners in nations around the world. It is a joy to partner with them for the advancement of the gospel and the teaching of God’s Word. I deeply appreciate their interest in our program and hope that you will support their work. You may find more information on their ministry along with a list of…

“Living My Truth”

Scott Pauley

The highlight story in a major magazine carried this title: “Living My Truth.” It was the story of a transgender airline pilot who proudly boasted that he was now living his own truth. My heart broke as I read the words of a man who had believed a lie but had convinced himself that he was living in truth. This is a mark of an apostate age – people have turned from revealed truth (Romans 1:18-25; Jude 4-10). When sin comes out blatantly and boldly it is not an expression of truth, it is evidence of rebellion. The fear of God is gone. There is no such thing as “my truth” or “your truth.” There is only truth, and all…

Starting Today!

Over the last few weeks I have been meeting people everywhere who are “Enjoying The Journey” with us through the Word of God. If you have been listening, thank you! If you have not yet joined us, today would be a good day! Starting today we are studying specific Scriptures that will help us know how to witness more effectively for Christ. This new series, Go With The Gospel, is now available on all of the podcast platforms and on our own website. My burden is to enlist and equip as many Christians as possible to share Christ with others. I hope you will be one of those people. This particular series also has printed material available if you would…

The Need Of Our Nation

It is easy to fuss at the darkness around us and fail to do the very things that bring true light into our dark world. Political conservatism and true Christianity are not the same thing. As followers of Christ our hope is in God and our help comes only from Him. This week we celebrate the birthday of our beloved America. I love my country and long to see a spiritual revival in our land. It is the hope of our nation and the need of every generation. Would you join me in making this week a week of prayer? Every celebration should be cause for us to remember the goodness of God and look to Him again. As you…

An Invitation To Preachers & Their Wives

Tammy and I are very grateful for those who have ministered to us through the years. Ministers need ministered to as well! There are moments that the best thing you can do is slow down, refresh your own soul, and prepare for the next season of ministry. It is with this in mind that Pastor Scott Hooks and I began The Preacher’s Rest last year. We were so pleased at the great number of fellow preachers and their wives who joined us and are excited about this year’s gathering, Monday-Wednesday, September 2-4, 2019. What better time than Labor Day to “come apart” and find spiritual, mental, and physical renewal! This year we look forward to discussing the devotional life of…

A New Generation Of Deacons

A few days ago I had the joy of speaking in a local church to a group of deacons and their wives. It was a wonderful meeting of true servants. At the end of the session a man came to speak to me. He has just been installed as a new deacon in that church and was so excited about the opportunity to serve the Lord and His people. In Scripture deacons are not “called” of God as pastors are, but they are qualified by God and chosen by the church. They are selected carefully and come along side the pastor to help the entire work of the Lord to move forward. The deacon’s office is the office of a…

7 Truths My Dad Taught Me

Roger Pauley Signature

Tonight I had the joy of sharing these thoughts with our church family. Perhaps they will be of some help to your family. My dad has been one of my greatest teachers. All fathers teach more than they realize, and more than their children realize until later in life. As a boy I enjoyed asking preachers to sign the flyleaf of my Bible and share their favorite verse. Occasionally I look back through those signatures with fond memories of many who taught me God’s truth. One day it dawned on me that I had never asked my own dad to sign my Bible. He was reluctant to do so but, when he did, he signed it differently than all of…

Why Everyone Needs Some Time Away

Call it a vacation, a holiday, a sabbatical…whatever you call it, at some point everyone needs it! We were made to work and God made us to rest as well. It is the pause that gives strength for the next advance. We have just returned from a few days away with our family and I was reminded during these days how beneficial such times can be. You do not have to go far or spend great sums of money to make it profitable. Here is why everyone needs some time away… Your family needs it. Even if you feel like you don’t, remember that your spouse and children need dedicated time with you. (For the record, you need it too!)…

7 Things That Are More Important

As we grow older (and hopefully wiser!) we begin to discern more about what is most important, what is more important, what is less important, and what is not important at all! One of the most difficult things to do is to eliminate good things so that you can emphasize better ones. Recently I wrote down seven things in my journal that God is showing me are important to Him. In the end this is what really matters – divinely ordered priorities. Be more concerned with prayer than planning. I am a planner by nature. Yet far too often I find myself making my plans and then asking God to bless them. As we pray we begin to find what…
