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.

Lord, Guard my Mouth

The tongue is a very powerful thing. James illustrates the relationship of the activity of the tongue with the rudder of a ship.

James 3:4 'Look also at ships; although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.'

That small rudder enables the pilot to steer the huge ship where he wants it to go. A slight pressure on the rudder of the ship will control it's course. James pointed out that no matter how adverse the circumstances through the fierce winds, if the rudder can be controlled by the pilot, the entire ship can be controlled. If the believer can maintain control of his tongue in adverse circumstances, he can maintain control over his entire being. As believers, if we are to maintain control, then we need to turn the control over to Jesus Christ; He needs to be in the driver's seat. We need to surrender our life over to Christ. When Christ controls the tongue, then we need not fear saying the wrong things. David knew this, that is why he said in Psalms 141:3 'Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.'
