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.

Fighting Battles Within

1 Peter 2:11 goes on to say that we are to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. The Greek is so expressive it is exciting to read. The verb tense of the word abstain is in the present infinitive, meaning it is a continuous or repeated action. So we are to repeatedly abstain from fleshly lusts which war a campaign against our soul or whole being.

Our real battle is not with people around us, but with passions within us. D.L. Moody said, "I have more trouble with D.L. Moody than with any man I know."

It is a constant warfare and we must be on our guard. In this real spiritual battle a demonic strategy is to attack believers at their weakest points. Christians are to abstain from sinful desires not only for their own spiritual well-being but also in order to maintain an effective testimony before unbelievers.

A positive Christian lifestyle is a powerful means of convicting the world of its sin. Remember we are surrounded by unsaved people who are constantly watching us.
