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.

Build each other up

We have now reached a part of our study that is very dear to my heart; Submission in the life of a believer between marriage partners; 1 Peter 3:1-7.

The subject matter in this scripture does not always apply to everyone, but as we look through these verses we are going to give some other options so that we can all apply these principles to our lives. Such attitudes as submission, understanding, love, kindness, and patience are not manufactured; they are the fruit of the Spirit that comes when we are submitted to Christ and to one another. As Christian marriage partners we need to be in God's Word together as well as having our own study times, we need to be praying with each other as well as our own personal prayer time - remember we are to be constantly praying, and we should be seeking to encourage each other in the faith. We don't need to be tearing each other down. *This principle can go for all of us no matter what our marital status is - we should all be seeking to encourage each other and building each other up rather than tearing each other down, right. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful God fearing husband who has always sought to build me up whether it be physically or spiritually. My friend, headship is not dictatorship, but the loving exercise of divine authority under the lordship of Jesus Christ. I look forward to exploring these verses with you over the next few posts. God bless
