Endings And Beginnings – Our September Schedule

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

It is amazing how quickly the summer season goes. Our kids are now back in school and hints of fall are in the air. As students return to their classrooms, we must all remember what God has taught us this summer. For many, the start of school is the restart of regular schedules and routines. Every day that schedule should include time with God, but we must guard that those times never become merely routine! September is a busy month of revival meetings. More than anything, our nation needs a fresh stirring of God’s Spirit. I often feel like the prophet Jeremiah, who lamented: “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved” (Jeremiah 8:20). Pray with…

30 Years Ago Tonight

Thirty years ago tonight I surrendered my life to Christ to preach His Word. Thirty years. A few days later, as a twelve-year-old boy, I stood in a cottage prayer meeting and preached my first Bible message. What an adventure it has been serving the Lord! Thousands of times I have had the joy of opening God’s Word and sharing His truth. God willing, tomorrow I will stand and preach the Bible again. I am still amazed that I get to do this with my life.  In an age of novelty and clever ideas I have no desire for something new. I am wary of the new, hungry for the freshtouch of God, and content with eternaltruth. The world doesn’t need better ideas;…

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…

3 Times Jesus Wept And What We Learn From His Tears

Enjoying the Journey blog square

Several months ago I preached a message on the tears of Jesus. Our Savior was a “man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:5). This is more than mere emotionalism or shallow sentimentality – it is a reminder that He cares and that He carries our burdens. There are three times in Scripture that Jesus wept (John 11:35; Luke 19:41; Hebrews 5:7-9). Each is near the end of His life and each reveals what matters most to our loving God. He truly is “touched with the feeling of our infirmities” (Hebrews 4:15). His tears are a reminder that He loves sinners and cares for every soul. A few weeks ago I received a very kind email from a young…

A Joyful Report

The last few weeks have been some of the busiest and most blessed we have seen in our evangelistic work. I know this is due to the Lord’s grace and the faithful prayers of so many people. With the intense schedule I have not posted as many articles as normal. We hope to return to that shortly! But I wanted to pass along a few answers to prayer and encourage you with what God is doing… The Lord has given a spirit of revival in a number of local churches in different parts of the country. I am often asked what we see frequently in churches. Right now there is a spiritual hunger among many of the Lord’s people. God…

I Need Your Prayers

Today I leave for a 10 day preaching trip. The Lord is helping us and we are seeing His hand. At the same time there is always spiritual warfare because everything God ordains, Satan opposes! The “great door” and the “many adversaries” always go together (1 Corinthians 16:9). I know that I need the Lord as never before. And I need your prayers. Between revival meetings in Colorado and Georgia it is my privilege to preach the gospel at the God Bless America Rally in Canton, Ohio, on May 1-4. My friend Byron Foxx and I have been humbled to see the fervent prayers and diligent labor of God’s people from 16 sponsoring churches. The Lord is stirring some things…

Our May Itinerary

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

Thank you for praying with us and for us month after month. The Lord is so very gracious and we are humbled just to be in His work. Several folks have said recently, “I would never want to do what you are doing.” The truth is that when God calls you to something He gives you both sufficient grace and superabounding joy in it. I love what the Lord has called us to do! This morning I read the words of the Lord to Moses, “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say” (Exodus 4:12). This is my prayer for each of our meetings. Over the next few weeks I have…

Part 2: How To Use Gospel Tracts Effectively

Recently I wrote a brief article on “Why You Should Use Gospel Tracts.” If you have not read it already I hope you will do so now. I am convinced that this is one of the great tools at our disposal for the advancement of the gospel! It is something everyone can do. Like every tool, gospel tracts can be used effectively or ineffectively. How can we make the most of our opportunity? Choose gospel tracts that are simple but complete. Be sure that the gospel message is plain and Scripture is prominent. At the same time, a gospel tract is not a book and should be very readable. People typically will only spend a few moments with it. It…
