Enjoying the Journey

It is hard to believe it has been almost a year! The international shutdown at the beginning of the pandemic has become a point of reference in a variety of ways, a turning point for many. During the quarantine we began using a Youtube channel to post Bible messages and words of encouragement. I must tell you that while I appreciate the technology at our disposal, I am very grateful to be back preaching to real people assembled together! However, many of the platforms that God opened for ministry during that unusual season have helped us to connect with people to whom we would not otherwise have ministered. We believe these tools can continue to be used for the advancement…

Have you wondered in recent weeks what more you can do for your country? On this President’s Day I am excited to announce the publication of a new booklet, The Need of Our Nation. We all are concerned about the direction of our beloved nation and burdened to see a spiritual awakening in our day. This short volume addresses, from God’s Word, the core issue and the only solution. President’s Day was originally set aside to commemorate the birthday of the first president of the United States. For believers, it is also a reminder to pray for our president every day (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Every president is just a man, and like every man, he is a sinner in need…

Tomorrow we begin the first meetings of a brand new year. We are grateful to God for allowing us to give the last five years to the work of evangelism and look forward to all God has for us in the days ahead. Thank you for keeping up with us and going with us through prayer. We wanted to give our friends a first glance at something we have been working on for some time… New Ministry Website Later this month we will launch a new ministry website, EnjoyingTheJourney.org. The new site will continue to provide what is currently available at scottpauley.org, but with much more content and a search engine that we believe will be helpful to anyone studying…

In recent days we have all been reminded of the positive use of technology and online resources for Christians and churches. They are platforms that can be used for the gospel and the encouragement of God’s people! We are increasingly asked where to find our full length Bible messages. Every church uses different platforms to archive their services and some are not available to all. The friends who help us with media have worked hard to archive many of the sermons that I give in revival and evangelistic meetings. We are very pleased to announce that these will begin to be posted regularly on a new YouTube channel! As always our daily podcast audio archives may be found at scottpauley.org/broadcast,…

When I was a student in college, Dr. Frank Sells once challenged us to choose a “life book” – a book of the Bible to immerse ourselves in and to hide in our hearts. That book became the New Testament letter of Philippians for me. It has for many years served as both an anchor to keep me from drifting and a prod to move me forward.  Over time the truth of “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4) became the ministry emphasis of “Enjoying The Journey.” We all preach and teach out of the overflow of what God is teaching us. I love sharing with others the reality of joy that is found in…

I love the gospel. It was the good news of Jesus Christ that changed my life and my eternal destiny! Every good thing in my life grows out of the gospel. Day after day I am witnessing the power of the gospel to change hearts and homes. It is the only true light for our nation and the only lasting hope for this generation. Several months ago the Lord led me to write a gospel tract, Would You Like A New Start? Watch the brief story behind the tract here. Over the last few weeks I have met two people who looked at the question on the front of the tract and said the same words: “I need this!” They were different people – one…

Several people have asked in recent weeks if I am working toward publishing any books. The answer is yes and the key word is “working”! My pastor wisely advised me not to publish much too early and to begin with smaller projects. I have tried to do that through writing weekly articles over the last seven years. One of my desires was to publish something related to the gospel before publishing other works. The message of Christ is the greatest message on earth! In the words of a divinely inspired evangelist and writer, “it is the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16). I have just completed a brand new gospel tract that we are praying will be used of…

When the Lord led me into evangelistic work one of the great desires of my heart was to help provide resources that would encourage and equip others to give the gospel. My prayer in each meeting is that God will give both new believers and new witnesses who will continue after we are gone. Only He can set things in motion that will last into eternity. The first resource that I had the joy of being a part of was a special GO Kit designed to train others in the matter of personal witnessing. It has been a joy to hear from many churches who are using this one month Bible study to place an emphasis on sharing the gospel. We…

Just this week as I was reading God’s Word I noticed a reference that Jesus made to the reading of Scripture. In Luke 6:3 Christ spoke to religious people when He said, “Have ye not read so much as this…? Those who knew so much about God had failed to read some of the most basic portions of His Word! If they had read it, they had forgotten it. Or misunderstood it. Or failed to obey it. The point is: they needed to read it again! And so do we. All this week on our “Enjoying the Journey” podcast I am dealing with simple principles that will help us return to daily Bible reading. I do hope you will listen…
