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.

Worship God Not the Gifts

We need to examine our hearts and ask “are our possessions more important to us than God”? In Matthew 19:20-21 “The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?" Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."


By Christ asking this young man to sell his goods and follow him, He was forcing him to examine his own heart and determine his priorities. Unfortunately, he was unable to obey the command as his possessions were more important to him. If God asked us to sell everything, would we be able to do it or would we be like this young man and choose our things over God.

Now that is NOT to say that we are to go out and sell everything! The point is that we surrender all we have to the Lord, that we put Christ first and worship Him rather than the gifts that he gives us. Things in and of themselves are NOT the problem, it is what we do with them.

We need to Worship the giver of the gifts Not the gifts themselves! Thank you Heavenly Father for the blessings you have given me!
