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.

Use Words Wisely

Words have a lot of power; What comes out of our soul, whether we pen them in writing or say them out loud can have a lasting effect on those around us.

Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:29 'Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.'

Think about that, your words can impart grace to those around you. God can work through our words to help others and bring his grace to them. You can be a light to person who is struggling, giving an encouraging word to build them up. You can build self-esteem instead of tearing a person down simply by the words we speak.

Paul also tells us to not let any corrupt word proceed out of our mouth; for example gossip only hurts people - it has no place coming out of our mouths and we should not listen to gossip either. It says in James 3:8 'But no man can tame the tongue' ...

My friend it is only with God's help that we can tame our tongue. Ask God each day to show you those who are hurting and need an encouraging word, to make your words edifying to those around you. Build those around you up, don't tear them down.
