A Personal Evangelist

Permit me to share with you something personal that God has been doing in my own heart. Week after week I am introduced to speak in some public meeting as an “evangelist.” Am I? Are you? In our world the term has become synonymous with one who travels extensively and preaches publicly. The evangelist is one whose great passion in the salvation of lost souls. This passion is not bound by geography or confined to a certain setting. It is the passion of his life. I am currently helping to teach an online class for the Crown Graduate School and Seminary on “Teaching and Preaching the Bible.” The students were required recently to read one of D.L. Moody’s gospel messages.…

Last Week’s Report And A Challenge For The Future

Just a few days ago we hosted a county-wide baccalaureate service for the graduating seniors of our home county. God blessed in a marvelous way. Hundreds of seniors, parents, grandparents, and friends gathered at a local high school auditorium. The Lord used a great team of volunteers, local churches, business sponsors, donors, and prayer partners. It was truly an exciting thing to be a small part. Seniors from area schools testified, led the music, and sang. Stirring challenges were shared by the State Highway Police Chaplain and a member of the State Board of Education. (Read the local newspaper article here.) It was my privilege to give a simple message about life and eternity. When the gospel was shared 38…

Our May Meetings

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

“This is the Lord‘s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:23-24). Every day is a gift. Every good thing the Lord does is grace. I am more conscious every day, in the words of Hudson Taylor, that I am “but the little servant of an illustrious Master.” The Lord is wonderful and we are in awe that He allows us to do anything in His work. God continues to meet us along the journey. The podcast has been extremely well received and a number of new radio stations are also picking up the broadcast. (Learn more at scottpauley.org/broadcast) We are hearing from people…

“Tell Me About The Great Churches!”

It is something I hear often. People are interested in the “great churches” in our generation. What are they? Where are they? Who is even qualified to say that they are great? Over the last thirty months on the road full time I have had the joy of being in hundreds of churches. Churches of all sizes and personalities. A church is a body – a living organism – and, as such, varies from place to place. Each is unique in some way. I have come to three conclusions about “great churches”… Every local, New Testament church is great because of the One to whom it belongs. The church belongs to no man. If it is a true church it…

An Opportunity to Invest in the Gospel

Not all investments are good ones! Investing in the gospel is always a wise investment. Today I am traveling to preach the Word of God. Continually I am reminded that many people who I will not see (some who I do not even know) are investing in the work God has called us to do through their prayers and support. How wonderful to labor together in the gospel! We are all called to participate in the work of Christ. It is every believer’s privilege to invest in the salvation of souls and the glory of God. There are specific things that we may give: We are to give the truth. People are only born again through the life-giving power of the…

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…
