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.

The Christian Walk

That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God ~ Colossians 1:10

The word “walk” is frequently used in Scripture to describe the outward, or visible, expression of our Christian life. It emphasizes progressing in conduct by taking one step at a time. The Christian life is not passive, when we walk worthy of the Lord our lives will manifest Christ's love through us attracting others to our Lord Jesus Christ rather than repel them. How sad it is to occasionally hear an unbeliever say, “If that person is a Christian, I do not want to be one.”

We need to be a light in a dark world. As Paul prayed for the Colossians and their walk, or way of life, he did not pray that it might be pleasing to man, but to God. Our lives should manifest spiritual fruit that others would want to have a taste of it, not spit it out. Living worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him!

The verse goes on to say 'increasing in the knowledge of God'. We need to make sure that our Christian walk is progressing and in order to do that, we need to be in God's word ~ increasing our knowledge of God ~ as we draw closer to our Lord.
