A Special Update and Our February Itinerary

The first month of 2018 has exceeded our prayers and plans. In the words of the Psalm 118:23, “This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.” So many of you have been praying and God is answering your prayers. Thank you for laboring with us for the gospel. I am happy to report that the Lord has blessed the new “Enjoying the Journey” podcast in a special way. In its first month the episodes have been listened to nearly 12,000 times! If you have not yet been able to listen you may catch up on the first episodes at scottpauley.org/broadcast. A new 10 minute Bible study comes out five times each week. You may subscribe at iTunes…

Meditations on Our Mission

After days of flying it takes a little time for your body (and your mind) to get back to normal! I’m not sure I am completely there but each day I am able to reflect a little more on our recent gospel work in Asia. While I am rejoicing in the work we were able to do, I am increasingly aware that He was also doing something in me. God has a way of holding class in unusual places. Here are a few of the truths He spoke to me about… The humanity of all people. She was a beautiful little girl. As she looked across the aisle of the plane at me and smiled, I saw my own girls…

A Special Prayer Request

small partner with us

I do not normally publish a post on the Lord’s day, but today I have a special prayer need to share with you. In just a few hours we will leave for India. Much prayer and preparation have gone into the next few days. Our team has been praying specific Scripture and definite prayers as we have prepared. Would you join us in these prayers? Pray that we will be clean, usable vessels (2 Timothy 2:21). Pray that God would give us safety and strength (Matthew 10:16-32). Pray for good ground for the gospel (Mark 4:20). Pray that the enemy would be bound and the Holy Spirit’s power would be loosed (Mark 9:23-29). Pray for much fruit – souls to…

The 3 Most Important Times in A Revival Meeting

We have just come through one of the busiest seasons of the year for revival meetings. In reality, God chooses the season for revival. It cannot be scheduled or planned. It will not be confined to our calendar. Revival comes in God’s time and God’s way. As I sit in meetings week after week, preaching and praying for revival, the Lord has impressed this truth on my heart… In every revival there are divine moments that must not be missed.  Is it possible that the Lord Jesus could show up in a meeting and His own people fail to recognize Him? I fear that the Holy Spirit is often a stranger in the places where “spiritual” men conduct the annual…

Would You Join Our Gospel Team?

Partner With Us

The Apostle Paul rarely ever ministered alone. For each gospel advance he enlisted and engaged a missionary team. In his words, “we are labourers together with God” (1 Corinthians 3:9). Some plant. Some water. God gives the increase. This is a gospel team at work. In January we are conducting an evangelistic crusade in India. A large number of Hindus will attend these meetings and we are praying for the power of Christ to be seen in the salvation of souls. I am personally excited about this gospel preaching mission. Would you join our team? We need prayer partners. The devil hates his territory invaded. Spiritual opposition is certain and persecution in this part of the world is common. I…

My Morning Meditation

Quote there is nothing wrong in this world that the Gospel cannot fix

Christ’s greatest work was not done in a Temple or a synagogue. It was not accomplished through discussion with religious leaders or debate with skeptics. His work was done outside the city where the lepers lived. At the side of the road where the beggar sat. In the fields where the poor gathered to hear something from God. The work of Jesus was on full display next to a well in Samaria and in a cemetery where broken hearts wailed and wept. Christ’s work was not to reform Rome or deliver Israel from severe taxation. It was to set common people free from the bondage of sin. His associates were not the religious elite and politically correct. They were rough…

Our October Schedule & A Request for Prayer

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

Thank you for your continued prayers. A precious lady at a church recently asked me, “What can I pray for specifically?” I love that. Specific prayers bring specific answers. Please pray that God would give His strength for a busy season of ministry. Without Him we can do nothing. With God all things are possible. I know I need the Lord’s enabling. Pray for souls to be saved. We have seen an unusual number of people come to faith in Christ in recent weeks. The salvation of one soul is a miracle! I long to see this fall become a true season of harvest. October is typically a month when many churches have revival meetings. No preacher can bring revival.…
