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.

Keep Focus on God

“Faith is a redirecting of our sight, a getting out of the focus of our own vision and getting God into focus.” ~ A.W. Tozer.

When we talk about getting out of the focus of our own vision, we are talking about those things that take the place of God, they have twisted our vision inward, looking at ourselves rather than placing our focus on God.

Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (NKJV)

My friend, let's examine this verse ~ Looking unto Jesus – “looking” is in the Present Active Participle – it means we are to continually look unto Jesus. This is not a one-time act; my friend, it is to be a continual action. Get your focus off yourself, off your circumstances and keep looking unto Jesus ~ He will direct you along life's journey! Live each day as unto the Lord, trusting in His ultimate plan for your life.
