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.

Meeting the Needs of Others

To illustrate  the Christian faith in action, James gives us an example in James 2:15-16 'If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?' 

Notice the language here, James is talking about a child of God in need, a brother or sister in Christ.  If our physical children or parents were in need, we wouldn't hesitate to help them would we, so how can we hesitate to help our spiritual family? 

Paul and the Apostle John are also in agreement with James as they too talk about meeting the needs of our spiritual family in Galatians 6:10 'Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.' and 1 John 3:17-18 'But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.' 

We cannot possibly claim that we have the love of God in our hearts if we do not manifest it toward our brothers and sisters in Christ.  This holiday season, show Christ's love and look for those opportunities to help one another. Live your life as unto the Lord.
