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.

Somebody is Watching you

When you think of strangers you think of a person visiting a place for a while, but he is not a permanent resident. We see Peter writing to the strangers in 1 Peter 1:1 ~ Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.

This is a descriptive picture being painted here in 1 Peter 1:1. Believers are strangers (parepidēmois ) on earth. The English word "strangers" refers to anyone with whom we are not acquainted, But the Greek word means far more than that. It is parepidemois, made up of para, "alongside of," epi, "upon," and demos, used in Biblical Greek of the people of a heathen city. The word here describes the recipients of this letter as Christians who have settled down alongside of the unsaved. Peter uses the same word in 2:11. He will not let us forget that we are living among the unsaved who are always carefully observing us.

The Question here would be "what are they observing in our life?"
"Do they see Christ's love shining through us?"
"If they were to follow in our footsteps would they find Christ as the center of our life?"

Be conscience of those around you and be an example as you walk the talk! Live each moment of the day for Christ! Child of God, be a Living Example ~ Walk the Talk
