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.

Do NOT Compromise

Living the Christian life is not always easy. When we live for Christ, really live righteous and godly lives, the unbelievers of the world reject us, don't they. Sometimes we get complacent, we tolerate sin around us. For example TV; we now see a lot more stuff on TV that we didn't see before. The TV moguls are getting their point of view across stronger and stronger, getting us used to seeing things and hearing things that never would have been allowed on TV before. But slowly we start accepting it, saying it isn't that bad.

A. W. Tozer said 'One compromise here, another there and soon enough the so-called Christian and the man in the world look the same.'

So how do we guard against this? Peter goes on to say in 1 Peter 4:1 "arm yourselves also with the same mind". The Greek word translated "arm yourselves" was used of a Greek soldier putting on his armor and taking his weapons. The noun of the same root was used of a heavily-armed foot-soldier who carried a pike and a large shield as opposed to a soldier who was lightly armed. The Christian needs the heaviest armor he can get, to withstand the attacks of the enemy of his soul.

My friend, we need to be vigilant to make sure that our minds are focused on heavenly things, that we keep our minds pure. Garbage in Garbage out. We need to examine our lives and ask God to reveal those areas in our lives that are not pleasing to Him.

DO NOT COMPROMISE! Live your life for Christ even if it means you are rejected by man. Stand firm on God's word.
