The Difference Between Faithfulness And Routine

“Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2). We all want to be faithful…but what does that mean? Faithfulness is not a schedule; it is a spirit. There are many people who are present but not present. Fathers who are at home but not really with their family. Church members who are in the meetings but not truly engaged. Preacher’s who are going through the motions but have lost heart. There is a difference between faithfulness and mere routine. Vance Havner once observed, “A rut is just a grave with both ends knocked out of it!” Routines can become ruts. Ruts are death. Here is the real issue: faithful to what? Many a…

Don’t Forget These Things On Your Christmas List!

Everyone is busy this week. Shopping. Eating. Cooking. Eating. Traveling. Eating. Wrapping. Eating. It is easy to forget the things that truly matter in the hurry and haste. Perhaps you are working feverishly from a Christmas list. Would you add these things to your list this year? Don’t forget Christ. Remember it is His birth we are celebrating! Spend some quiet time communing with Him each day. Set aside moments for the Word and prayer. Tell Him you love Him and show Him by what you do with your time. Don’t forget your family. Is that possible at Christmas? Certainly. We can be so distracted doing things for them that we forget to be with them. Be present. Talk. Laugh.…

Our April Itinerary

Scott Pauley Preaching

The last few days of March will be very busy. We are excited about the opportunities before us in April. Only the Lord knows how long we have to serve Him – Jesus could come today! Until then, we want to be faithful in the work of revival and the gospel. Several folks have asked about our itinerary recently. Although we have tentatively scheduled meetings well into the future, we only post our schedule online about 60 days out. If you have a question about meetings beyond what is posted please feel free to email us at any time. It has been a joy to reunite with so many friends while on the road. God bless you for your continued prayers for…

Will You Do This In the Morning?

Enjoying the Journey blog square

In recent years I have come to realize the importance of the morning hours. There is something special about the quiet – and the coffee! – before the noise of the day. God desires, and deserves, the first. (Read more about the blessing of early mornings.) A friend once said to me that it was his practice not to speak to any man in the morning until first he had spoken to the Lord. David wrote in Psalm 5:3, “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” Most people look at their phones as soon as they awake. We look in the mirror. We look at…

May Ministry Itinerary and Update

God is at work all over our world. When He declared that “evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse” He did not say that He would do less and less! In perilous times His power is still active. It has been a thrill to see the Lord’s hand in so many places in recent weeks. I am writing this update in the Toronto International Airport. My heart has been so encouraged over the last few days to witness the beautiful work of the Holy Spirit! On this trip to Canada I have been reminded again of the power of the gospel and the need for revival. Several hundred men gathered here in Ontario to seek the Lord. There…

Ministry Update and February Itinerary

Tomorrow we will finish our first month of full-time evangelistic work. The Lord has been so wonderful to us. We are truly grateful for many friends who have expressed interest in the work God has called us to do. I am increasingly aware of the need for intercessory prayer and want to thank you for praying for us. I am convinced that there is no problem in our nation that the gospel of Jesus Christ could not fix, and there is no need in our churches that a Heaven sent revival would not meet. These are exciting days to serve the Lord. We are laboring on the edge of eternity and time is short. In the opening weeks of 2016…
