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.

Draw near to God

God is as close as our most secret thoughts. Have you ever thought about that, That is close! He is not a God a far off.

It says in Psalm 44:21 'Would not God find this out? For He knows the secrets of the heart.' So why is it that we don’t always feel God’s presence in our lives?

Think of this illustration between a husband and wife: The wife was reflecting on their relationship and feeling distant from her husband and she said to him, “You know honey, we don’t sit close together in the car like we use to”. The husband replied, “I’m sitting behind the steering wheel; if we don’t sit as close as we used to, I’m not the one who has moved." ~ This is the same as our relationship with God. We may not feel as close to God, but He has not moved, He is here with us always. It is not God that is causing the distance, but us.

James 4:8 'Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.'
