A Personal Testimony that Taught Me A Powerful Truth

By Scott Pauley | January 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Preachers do not always preach the most powerful sermons. Sometimes church members do. Not long ago I sat in an auditorium as a humble man rose from his seat to share a simple testimony. While he spoke, God spoke to me. I cannot tell you all that he said, or even all that he meant by what he said. But there was that one phrase… It was the kind of phrase that sticks like a barb in the soul – words that stay with you long after the voice that gave them has been forgotten. The soft-spoken man talked of how grateful he was for food and for clothing, for the basic needs of life. And then he said, “I…

“Thank You For Loving Our Country With Me”

By Scott Pauley | January 18, 2018 | 1 Comment

As you read this post I am ministering in another country. No matter where I travel in this world, I can boldly proclaim that God loves all people and Christ died for every man. Our heart for humanity must be bigger than one people group because God’s heart is! While it is a privilege to labor in other nations there is always something special about coming home. I love America. It is my country and it is a country that has been specially blessed by God. As we seek to reach the world with the gospel we must never neglect the mission field immediately around us… Pray for our country’s leaders (1 Timothy 2:14). Prayer is the most important work…

Announcing New Guest Blog Posts!

By Scott Pauley | January 16, 2018 | 1 Comment

Last year we provided a free resource each month to encourage and equip believers. In 2018 I would like to make available a different type of resource. Each month a special guest will publish a blog post on Enjoying the Journey. People are the greatest blessing of all! The writers will all be different and will provide insight and help on a variety of areas. It is my hope that their posts will allow you to get acquainted with them and with other tools that may be available. We are all on a journey with Jesus. Along the way God uses fellow travelers to help us stay on the right path and keep moving forward. In John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress it was…

A Special Prayer Request

By Scott Pauley | January 14, 2018 | 3 Comments

I do not normally publish a post on the Lord’s day, but today I have a special prayer need to share with you. In just a few hours we will leave for India. Much prayer and preparation have gone into the next few days. Our team has been praying specific Scripture and definite prayers as we have prepared. Would you join us in these prayers? Pray that we will be clean, usable vessels (2 Timothy 2:21). Pray that God would give us safety and strength (Matthew 10:16-32). Pray for good ground for the gospel (Mark 4:20). Pray that the enemy would be bound and the Holy Spirit’s power would be loosed (Mark 9:23-29). Pray for much fruit – souls to…

The Lord’s Love for Little Ones

By Scott Pauley | January 11, 2018 | 0 Comments

Recently I had the joy of spending a few minutes with a group of children who have given and prayed for our upcoming gospel work in India. What an encouragement to be with boys and girls and see the excitement about life and the Lord on their faces! As I travel the Lord has often used a child to minister to me. “Out of the mouth of babes” God often speaks encouragement. I have a file of notes and drawings made by children in so many places. They are truly the Lord’s messengers to us. And what is our message to them? In the formative years, the tender time of life, children’s hearts are so open to the truth. Hungry…
