Enjoying the Journey

A Brand New Series Of Bible Messages Now Available

When I was a student in college, Dr. Frank Sells once challenged us to choose a “life book” – a book of the Bible to immerse ourselves in and to hide in our hearts. That book became the New Testament letter of Philippians for me. It has for many years served as both an anchor to keep me from drifting and a prod to move me forward.  Over time the truth of “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4) became the ministry emphasis of “Enjoying The Journey.” We all preach and teach out of the overflow of what God is teaching us. I love sharing with others the reality of joy that is found in…

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;…

I Need Your Prayers

Today I leave for a 10 day preaching trip. The Lord is helping us and we are seeing His hand. At the same time there is always spiritual warfare because everything God ordains, Satan opposes! The “great door” and the “many adversaries” always go together (1 Corinthians 16:9). I know that I need the Lord as never before. And I need your prayers. Between revival meetings in Colorado and Georgia it is my privilege to preach the gospel at the God Bless America Rally in Canton, Ohio, on May 1-4. My friend Byron Foxx and I have been humbled to see the fervent prayers and diligent labor of God’s people from 16 sponsoring churches. The Lord is stirring some things…

Our May Itinerary

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

Thank you for praying with us and for us month after month. The Lord is so very gracious and we are humbled just to be in His work. Several folks have said recently, “I would never want to do what you are doing.” The truth is that when God calls you to something He gives you both sufficient grace and superabounding joy in it. I love what the Lord has called us to do! This morning I read the words of the Lord to Moses, “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say” (Exodus 4:12). This is my prayer for each of our meetings. Over the next few weeks I have…

Messages In March

Recently we have heard from precious friends who are watching and listening to messages given at recent meetings. Sometimes the churches that we are in livestream their services or archive their messages on their church website. A number of messages have also been made available on sites like Sermon Audio. My desire is to get God’s Word into as many hearts and homes as possible, and we are grateful for the technology that allows us to share God’s truth. Through the years we have posted messages periodically at scottpauley.org/sermons that we thought would be a help. We plan to continue to do that in the days ahead. This month we have decided to do something special and a new Bible…

Our March Prayer List

Life is not about things “to-do” but about things “to-pray” for. Every event should be an opportunity to pray. The calendar should become part of our prayer list! As I look over our schedule week by week I am praying that in every place the Lord Jesus will be glorified, the Holy Spirit will have liberty, and the Father will be pleased. Would you join me in that prayer for the month ahead? Sunday-Tuesday, March 3-5 – Revival, Community Baptist Church, Lenoir City, TN, Pastor Ken Scoggins Monday, March 4 – Chapel, The Crown College, Powell, TN, Dr. Clarence Sexton Sunday-Tuesday, March 10-12 – Revival, Truth Baptist Church, Mechanicsville, VA, Pastor Erik Hastings Sunday, March 17 – Morning and Evening…

“Where Did You Get That Sermon?”

Every preacher is different. The same all-wise God who used the unique personalities and gifts of the Bible writers continues to minister through all different types of men. Over time a man learns how God speaks to him and how he best can receive and relay the Lord’s message to others.  Preaching day after day the Lord is teaching me much about myself and about preaching that no homiletics class or book on preaching can convey. You can take a text from anywhere in the Bible with confidence that it is the very Word of God without error. It will work. But do we not think that God would like to be involved in what we preach to His people?…
