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.

Strengthens our Faith

As we conclude the first spiritual incentive to encourage us to maintain a holy walk, Peter’s exhortation brings us back to the foundation of our faith, the grace that has been given and will be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:13 "Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;"

Looking for Christ to return strengthens our faith and hope in difficult days. Knowing that our time here is only for a little while helps endure those times of trials. Peter exhorts us to set our hope perfectly, wholly, and unchangeably, without doubt and despondency upon our future glorification. We know the Lord is going to return and we can live each day to glorify His name.
Christians live in the future tense; their present actions and decisions are governed by this future hope. Outlook determines outcome; attitude determines action. A Christian who is looking for the glory of God has a greater motivation for present obedience than a Christian who ignores the Lord's return.
