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.

Walk the Talk

As we look at Walking in Submission as a citizen of Heaven to the lost,

Let's look at 1 Peter 2:12 "having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation." A positive Christian lifestyle is a powerful means of convicting the world of its sin. Remember we are surrounded by unsaved people who are constantly watching us. Gentiles is not referring here to Gentiles as in contrast to Jews, but to the unsaved world, the world of people without Christ. If we are to witness to the lost world around us, we need to live an honest life. Honest translated in the Greek speaks of goodness which is beautiful, an outer goodness that strikes the eye. Our manner of life is honest when our lives are in accordance with what we are inwardly, cleansed, regenerated children of God. We give others an honest testimony and picture of what we really are inwardly.

My friends, We do not witness only with our lips; we must back up our "talk" with our "walk". There should be nothing in our conduct that will give the unsaved ammunition to attack Christ and the gospel. Our good works must back up our good words. Jesus said this in Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." - We need to walk the talk. We need to ask ourselves, "What kind of witness am I?" Are the unsaved coming to know the Lord by watching your life - does your life represent Christ's light? Of course, everything we do should be for the glory of the Lord and the good of His kingdom.
