Announcing A Special Christmas Series!

Can you believe that it is December? The month ahead will be a busy one for families and church families. We must never allow our schedules to crowd out time in the Scripture. Every day is a day to celebrate our Savior and one of the best ways to do so is to spend time with Him each day. Beginning Monday on Enjoying The Journey we will study some of the great Scripture texts about the Lord Jesus Christ. It will be a month of Christmas on the podcast! We hope you will join us as we walk through God’s Word and meditate on our wonderful Savior. Each week we will look at a special part of the Christmas message……

A Season Of Thanks

There are many commands given to God’s people. Each of the Lord’s commands are given for our good and His glory. This is certainly the case for the command most often repeated in Scripture. More than any other admonition in the Word of God we are commanded to praise the Lord! Why does God repeat this so frequently? Praise is purifying. When we begin to praise we come into the presence of the Lord, and His presence purifies every other part of life! Praising Christians are kept happy, holy, and humble. As we enter the month of November there will be much talk of giving thanks. Thanksgiving must be more than a holiday. This season of thanks should be a…

A Man Who Learned To Enjoy The Journey

They were called “the Big Red Machine” when I was a little boy. It was the days before the baseball strike and before Pete Rose was kicked out of the game for gambling. The Cincinnati Reds were my team and I loved to watch them. The names of Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez, and later Eric Davis and Barry Larkin are etched in my memory. To be honest I do not remember the name of pitcher Frank Pastore. Over the last few days I have been reading his biography, Shattered, which is published by Focus on the Family. This is not your typical “success story.” The book is a powerful record of God’s grace and how the Lord…

The Next Three Weeks

It has been a great blessing to me personally to meet so many people recently who are listening to Enjoying The Journey each day through the podcast or radio broadcast. God has been gracious to grow the reach of the Bible study over this first year. Many of you have been kind to let us know you are listening. Our most recent episodes have dealt with principles for finding direction and making decisions for life. (If you missed any of these studies you may listen to all of them in our archives.) The next three weeks we will continue this emphasis with a look at my favorite section of the Psalms – Psalms For The Traveler. The Psalms are beloved…

Thanks For Listening!

Eight months ago we took another step on our own journey with the beginning of the Enjoying The Journey podcast. God has been gracious to give us favor and so many of you have been very kind to join us. We have just crossed the threshold of 95,000 listens to the Bible studies! Every where I go I am meeting people who are Enjoying The Journey with us and emails from people in different parts of the world have been a great encouragement. Currently we are studying some of the prayers of the New Testament. Our cry is: “Lord, teach us to pray!” Near the end of September we will begin a brand new series designed to help people make decisions in the will…

Don’t Miss A Special Broadcast Tomorrow!

Today we finish our “Journey Through Scripture” podcast series. So many of you have let us know that you have been making the journey with us and have helped to share it with others. Thank you. Tomorrow we are releasing an episode that is a special word to our listeners. This informal conversation is the only weekend broadcast we have ever done. It is an epilogue of sorts with a special resource that I am excited to make available. I know it is Saturday, but would you take the time to listen? You can find all of the podcasts archived and listen to the new one at scottpauley.org/broadcast. Those who participate will be able to receive a ready reference tool…

My New Favorite Bible Character

Do you have a favorite Bible character? Each one has some message for us. They may serve as a positive example or a negative example. At different times, they may be both! Over the last few months I have been spending a lot of time with John the Baptist. He has come alive to me. He is the greatest man born of woman according to Jesus. That’s quite an endorsement. Yet he had his struggles. Even his questions. There are a number of wonderful things written about the life of John the Baptist. One of my personal favorites was written by F.B. Meyer. It has made me think of so many truths. I have decided that our next “Enjoying the…

Q/A About Our Daily Broadcast

Last week we celebrated our 100th “Enjoying the Journey” episode. Yesterday we concluded our journey through the Old Testament. On today’s broadcast we are examining what God was up to between Malachi and Matthew. Soon we will launch into the next phase of our journey as we begin to walk through the New Testament. I love the Word of God and I love sharing it with others. If you have not yet joined us I want to give you a personal invitation to begin “Enjoying the Journey” this week! Here are a few answers to frequent questions… How did the broadcast begin? A local radio station asked if I would consider doing a daily morning program. I knew if we were…

A Poem, A Principle, and A Prayer

When I was in college someone gave me a copy of an anonymous  poem about the Bible as God’s revelation of Himself. Today we begin a new podcast series called “Journey Through the Scripture.” My prayer is that we all will come to know the written Word in a greater way, and through this journey, we will come to know the Living Word more personally. Bible study is not about knowing things; it is about knowing Christ. I thought you would like a copy of the poem for yourself. I hope it, and the daily studies, will be a blessing to you… I see my Lord in the Bible, Whenever I chance to look. He is the theme of the…

Special Announcement!

I am so very excited about the news I am going to share with you today! At the beginning of this year we began a daily podcast to promote the study of God’s Word. It is a joy to meet people who are being helped by the daily episodes. Friends have shared with me that they are using the podcast in their family devotions. Some are using it for Bible class as they homeschool their children. College students and working people have told me they have made it a part of their morning or evening commute. It is a privilege to teach the Bible to so many precious people. The first weeks of Enjoying the Journey were a study through…
