Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

Nourishment to our Soul

What a wonderful picture we see in the book of Jeremiah of finding Joy and Delight in our hearts as we feed on God's word!

Jeremiah 15:16 'Your words were found and I ate them, and Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I have been called by Your name.' NASB

Bible Study is essential to our Christian Walk bringing spiritual nourishment to our souls! It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. My friend as you delight in God's word, reflect on what it is saying. Don't just rush through the scripture, meditate on it. Before you start reading, ask God to reveal what He wants you to learn through it; and then obey what it says. The more we spend in God's word the more we will be equipped to handle any circumstance that comes our way and we won't fall apart.

'The Bible that is falling apart belongs to a person who is not falling apart'.
Is your Bible falling apart from you using it every day? Be blessed my friend as you feast on God's word!

Christ's Light in Dark times

Christmas lights are especially beautiful at night-time as they shine brightly in the midst of the dark evening.

We can say the same thing about our lives when we are at our darkest point in life, it is a beautiful thing to see Christ's light shine through us to encourage and strengthen us. You see Jesus Christ is the Light of the World! John 8:12 tells us: Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."
So this Christmas season, when you see the beautiful Christmas lights, know that Jesus is with you to brighten your way. Stop and reflect on all the blessings He has given you this year and know that He is with you twenty-four seven. He is with you through the good times as well as the bad. He never sleeps and is waiting to commune with you, to encourage and strengthen you in your Christian walk.

Christ's light shines bright in our darkest times! Thank you Lord Jesus for being with me through the tough times!

Love One Another

O Holy Night, The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior's birth! ~ the third verse goes on to say: Truly He taught us to love one another His law is love and His gospel is peace.

'This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.' ~ John 15:12

'But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.' ~ James 3:17

As we gather with family and friends this Christmas season let us remember to celebrate Christ and spread His love and peace to those around us.

Reflect on Jesus

Christmas is fast approaching and Christmas Joy is being shared across the world in anticipation of that glorious day! Ah the celebration of the Birth of our Savior which brings joy to my soul. This will probably be one of the busiest weeks as there will soon be lots of people out on the roads doing their last minute shopping and traveling to visit friends and family.

Take time, my friend, in your busy schedules to reflect on Jesus Christ, our Savior - The Reason for the Season. Praise Him for the blessings that He has given you this year. Remember those who are suffering and be mindful of those who have lost loved ones that won't be there to celebrate this year - Show them Christ's love. May the Lord bless you and keep you safe this Christmas Season.

The Perfect Gift

Each year at Christmas time we try to think of the Perfect Gift to give our loved ones. Well my friend God gave us the Perfect Gift!

John 3:16 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.'

Isaiah 9:6 'For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given,'

God gave His only Son as the Perfect Gift so that we may have everlasting life and spend eternity with Him! In order to receive this free gift you must believe in Jesus Christ, in His death, burial, and resurrection. That is it my friend, it is not by works or anything you do. Ephesians 2:8 'For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God'

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, accept Him today my friend; accept God's free gift to you as we do not know what tomorrow holds. God Bless and may you have a Merry Christmas.

"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Here is a sample prayer:
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen." ~

The Light of the World

You can see Jesus Christ - King of kings and Lord of lords in every Christmas light, in every flickering candle, in every light source for He is the Light of the World!

Surrender Everything to Him! God gave His only Son for you - Give to Him a life that is honoring to Him. Allow God's light to shine through you!!!

All to Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give. I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live. I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all. Have you made Jesus Christ Lord of your Life?

Psalms 31:14 'But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say 'You are my God'.

Think before you Speak

I think we can all say there has been a person in our lives that makes us angry by their words or actions. The important thing is that we do not respond back in anger. Proverbs 15:1 tells us 'A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.'

Ephesians 4:29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.

We need to say this prayer as David did in Psalm 141:3 'Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.’ When you respond with a gentle answer, it disarms the situation; Whereas if you respond with harsh words, it only fuels the fire. Proverbs 16:24 'Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.'

What testimony are we leaving? Are our words Truthful, Helpful, Inspirational, Necessary, and Kind? We need to think before we speak and make sure a godly testimony is displayed in our speech as well as our conduct.
