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.

This too shall pass

No matter what pain or trial we face in this life, we know that it is not our final experience.

Jesus offers us a living hope, a confidence in his promise of eternal life. Because of this hope we can endure persecution and suffering. Note how our inheritance is described in 1 Peter 1:4: "to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you". ~ Incorruptible - Undefiled - Does not fade away
Incorruptible means that nothing can ruin it, undefiled - it cannot be stained or cheapened in any way, it will never fade or decay it is eternal. Our promised inheritance comes from our loving Father; We cannot earn an inheritance; it is a gift. God has reserved the inheritance for those who have accepted Christ as their savior.

I have that old hymn running in my mind ~ This world is not my home - I'm just a passing through! Remember my friend, this home here on earth is only temporary. No matter what pain or trial you are facing today, know that it is only temporary - this too shall pass. Our permanent home is in Heaven!
