Enjoying the Journey

Finding Your Way

By Scott Pauley | March 12, 2019 | 3 Comments

Frequently I hear it said of someone that he is still trying to “find his way” in life. Our world is full of aimless drifters and empty souls. Another toy. Another trip. Another lover. Everyone just trying to find their way – but, to where? Many people have traveled all of life on a certain path only to discover that it did not lead to the destination they had hoped. How do you find your way, the Lord’s way, for life? God has given us a guidebook for the journey. Only Scripture can show us the plain and right path. Bible principles point the way. Proverbs 22:6 is often quoted and rarely understood. Solomon, filled with the wisdom of the…

By Scott Pauley | March 6, 2019 | 2 Comments

Bob Crichton and I had the joy of laboring together in the Lord’s work for many years. He has been a faithful friend and spiritual counselor to me.

Messages In March

By Scott Pauley | March 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

Recently we have heard from precious friends who are watching and listening to messages given at recent meetings. Sometimes the churches that we are in livestream their services or archive their messages on their church website. A number of messages have also been made available on sites like Sermon Audio. My desire is to get God’s Word into as many hearts and homes as possible, and we are grateful for the technology that allows us to share God’s truth. Through the years we have posted messages periodically at scottpauley.org/sermons that we thought would be a help. We plan to continue to do that in the days ahead. This month we have decided to do something special and a new Bible…

The True Church Business Meeting

By Scott Pauley | March 2, 2019 | 0 Comments

I arrived a half hour before the evening service was to start. One hundred people were already seated in the auditorium. Why were they early? The church was meeting for important business: it was meeting to pray. There was little talk to one another. The preaching would not take place for another hour. God’s people were there for one reason. To pray. As a kid growing up in church the most dreaded meeting of the year was the church business meeting. Usually it is one of the worst attended or one of the best attended…neither of which is usually a good sign. Pastors and people alike sigh and talk of getting the annual “business meeting” out of the way. While…

God Hates Abortion

By Scott Pauley | February 28, 2019 | 4 Comments

A pastor that is being mightily used of God told me this week that doctors had advised his parents to abort him. Today I am thinking not only of the more than 1.5 million babies who missed the opportunity to live their lives but also what we have missed! Doctors, teachers, pastors, laborers, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters…never known. Never allowed to live. My heart hurts for the more than 1.5 million babies who never had the opportunity I have had. Three years before I was born Roe v. Wade was passed, legalizing abortion in America. How I thank the Lord for a dad and mom that never considered abortion! I believe we will meet an army of aborted people in…
