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.

Forgive One Another

Adversity often comes to us through the actions of people; they can be really cruel and we can become bitter and have resentment towards those people who add to the adversities in our lives.

But one thing we have to remember is that whether the person brings adversity in your life on purpose or not, God's sovereign hand is in it. There is nothing that is going to happen to you today that God has not allowed.

Ephesians 4:32 'And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.' When we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, we recognize that our strength is in Him, not in ourselves. We need to look beyond the person causing the adversity and forgive them because it is God working in your life to shape you into the image of His Son. Job could have been bitter towards the Sabeans who took his oxen and donkeys, and the Chaldeans for stealing his camels and killing his servants, but he saw the hand of God in his adversity. Don't allow people to rob you of your joy...ask God to help you with the people in your life that cause you adversity.
