Enjoying the Journey

This week I am preaching at the historic Sixth Avenue Bible Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY. This beautiful 150-year old church is the continuing fruit of a faithful man. Robert Lowry is now famous for the many hymns that he wrote. Great songs like “Christ Arose” and “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus” came from his pen. But Lowry himself said that he would rather preach the gospel than write a hymn. He did both well. While pastoring in Brooklyn he helped to begin the Flatbush Mission – another gospel preaching station – which would later become the Sixth Avenue Baptist Church. Just across the East River in lower Manhattan stands the Bowery Mission. It was there that for many…

There is nothing in this world quite like seeing an eternal soul come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that Scripture teaches God’s love for all people and that Christ died for every person (John 3:16). Believers are privileged and responsible to share the good news of salvation with “every creature” (Mark 16:15). We should use every God-honoring means at our disposal to get this message out! One misconception that is common in a world of mass media and mass messaging is that somehow the majority of people will be saved through mass evangelism. Many people have a picture in their minds of a well spoken evangelist blowing through town and preaching dynamic sermons with great crowds…

I thank God for faithful evangelists. They are a gift to the local church (Ephesians 4:11), and properly used, a help to both pastor and people. It has been a joy at this stage in my life to learn more about evangelism both from personal experience and from the experiences of others.   Larry Clayton has been one of the Lord’s faithful evangelists for many years. He lives and labors to win the lost to Christ, start churches, and help stir God’s people. Some time ago he and his precious wife came to a gospel crusade where I was preaching. After one of the services we had a meal together and he was a great encouragement to me personally. Men…

Today is the first day of a new month, the first day of a new year, and the first day of a new decade. God has allowed us to live to this day and to labor for Him. How blessed we all are! Joshua gave the children of Israel instructions from God as they moved forward. In Joshua 3:4 he said, “that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.” None of us have passed this way before and all of us need divine direction. Someone stated the obvious when they said, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life!” A great year must be lived one…

An Open Letter to Friends from Scott Pauley

Life is not a series of endings, it is a series of new beginnings. Five years ago we finished a season of ministry at a wonderful church and college, and began the gospel and revival work that God has given us. Now, we stand at the end of our fourth year and the beginning of another year of ministry. I am more excited than ever about what the Lord has called us to do! As we begin our 5th year in evangelism here are 5 of the greatest truths God is teaching me: The Bible is enough. God’s Word speaks to the deepest need of every heart. The Scriptures are all-sufficient in every place, every day. I can testify that…

Do you love your hometown? Who will reach your town, your Jerusalem for Jesus? Today we meet with pastors from around our region for a time of prayer. This meeting will be held at the convention center where in July 2020 we will be conducting a gospel crusade. The goal is simple – we want to reach our Jerusalem with the truth of Jesus Christ! If each believer and every local congregation could get a vision for souls in their area what a tremendous impact could be made! The Apostle Paul said to a group of people where he had lived for three and a half years, “And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have…

December?!? Yesterday was the first day of the month and we are now in the last month of the year. Spiritually speaking, this is not the time to shift into neutral and coast through the rest of 2019. How you finish this year will likely determine how you begin the new year. December is in many ways one of the greatest months for the gospel. People in general are warmer, more receptive. Churches and communities have a host of opportunities for talking about the coming of Christ – and why He came! Family and friends who are often separated come together. December is a month of divine appointments. Divine appointments is an expression I have used for those moments when…

Frequently I am asked if I plan to continue in evangelism, if I want to pastor, or if I miss what I did in the past. They are good questions that all have the same answer. I love what God has given me to do and plan to do it as long as God desires. As I have reflected on the work God has called us to do these are my thoughts… I am doing what I am doing because I want to get the gospel to as many people as possible. I love the work of the gospel. I am doing what I am doing because I want to give my time and energy to getting God’s Word into…
