Would You Help Us?

Rarely do I post anything on a Saturday night but this is special. On Tuesday one of my dearest friends and fellow laborers is leaving for Iraq. God has called him and his family to labor in that needy part of our world. I have been challenged by their faith and believe that our Master has divine appointments for them there. Over the last months they have seen definite provision and preparation for the work they have been given to do. In recent days a Christian businessman offered to match gifts up to $20,000 and many others have given sacrificially. God’s people have been wonderful. Tammy and I are honored to have a part and happy to ask others to…

A Gospel Message You Can Use

The passion of my life is to get the good news of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible. Time is flying and eternity is coming. We must do what we can while we can! Who are you taking to heaven with you? Some time ago I gave a message from the oldest Psalm in the Bible, Moses prayer in Psalm 90. The Lord saw fit to use it to bring souls to Christ and He led me to make it available in a way that could be passed along to others. That message, The Days Of Our Years, is now produced in cd format. I recorded a conversational introduction and very specific gospel appeal at the end of…

Why I Am Doing What I Am Doing

Scott Pauley

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…

The Lost Art Of Christian Hospitality

Every week I have the privilege of being hosted by wonderful Christians.  While there is “no place like home” it is also true that there is “nothing like being with God’s people.” It’s more than friendship – it’s family. Recently as I spent time with some very gracious people I was reminded of the necessity and purpose of Christian hospitality. In the ancient world to open your home was to open your heart. The Apostle Paul repeatedly referenced the kindness that was shown to him on his missionary travels. Christian hospitality is more than merely meeting human needs – it is showing the love of God. The Lord Jesus Christ was frequently hosted in homes and blessed by the kindness of…

A Tract A Day

Just a few days ago my dad challenged our home church family to take 6 gospel tracts – one for each day between Sundays – and pass them along to others. Great numbers of people took 6 tracts to share with family, friends, and strangers. It has been wonderful to see the good response of people in the community and a wonderful reminder of a simple way to share Christ. As I have been working to stay “armed with the gospel” every day I have been reminded of several things: Giving out a tract is not the goal – pointing people to Jesus is the goal! In many instances a kind word and a gospel tract may open up a…

30 Years Ago Tonight

Thirty years ago tonight I surrendered my life to Christ to preach His Word. Thirty years. A few days later, as a twelve-year-old boy, I stood in a cottage prayer meeting and preached my first Bible message. What an adventure it has been serving the Lord! Thousands of times I have had the joy of opening God’s Word and sharing His truth. God willing, tomorrow I will stand and preach the Bible again. I am still amazed that I get to do this with my life.  In an age of novelty and clever ideas I have no desire for something new. I am wary of the new, hungry for the freshtouch of God, and content with eternaltruth. The world doesn’t need better ideas;…

Starting Today!

Over the last few weeks I have been meeting people everywhere who are “Enjoying The Journey” with us through the Word of God. If you have been listening, thank you! If you have not yet joined us, today would be a good day! Starting today we are studying specific Scriptures that will help us know how to witness more effectively for Christ. This new series, Go With The Gospel, is now available on all of the podcast platforms and on our own website. My burden is to enlist and equip as many Christians as possible to share Christ with others. I hope you will be one of those people. This particular series also has printed material available if you would…

A Joyful Report

The last few weeks have been some of the busiest and most blessed we have seen in our evangelistic work. I know this is due to the Lord’s grace and the faithful prayers of so many people. With the intense schedule I have not posted as many articles as normal. We hope to return to that shortly! But I wanted to pass along a few answers to prayer and encourage you with what God is doing… The Lord has given a spirit of revival in a number of local churches in different parts of the country. I am often asked what we see frequently in churches. Right now there is a spiritual hunger among many of the Lord’s people. God…

Part 2: How To Use Gospel Tracts Effectively

Recently I wrote a brief article on “Why You Should Use Gospel Tracts.” If you have not read it already I hope you will do so now. I am convinced that this is one of the great tools at our disposal for the advancement of the gospel! It is something everyone can do. Like every tool, gospel tracts can be used effectively or ineffectively. How can we make the most of our opportunity? Choose gospel tracts that are simple but complete. Be sure that the gospel message is plain and Scripture is prominent. At the same time, a gospel tract is not a book and should be very readable. People typically will only spend a few moments with it. It…

Why You Should Use Gospel Tracts

Gospel literature is one means of communicating the message of Christ to great numbers of people one at a time. Imagine how many people could be reached if every believer simply carried tracts and gave them out as they went about their normal routines! The power of the literature is not in the words of men, but in getting the Word of God into the hands and hearts of those who may not otherwise receive it. Tracts remind the believer to be soul conscious. Just carrying gospel literature encourages us to think of eternal things. We must live like followers of Jesus if we intend to share Him. We must constantly be on the lookout for people who need a…
