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.

The Grace of God

“But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:10-11.

There are two great resources here: His grace and His call to eternal glory. Everything that God does for us as Christians is because of His grace. Notice that the verse even called Him the God of all grace. Grace means favor, the favor of God. God favors us; therefore, He blesses us. Every blessing we ever receive comes from the favor of God, even life itself. Our salvation is because of His grace (1 Peter 1:10). He called us before we called on Him (1 Peter 1:2 “elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.”)

We have tasted that the Lord is gracious as it says in 1 Peter 2:3. My friend, as we submit to Him He gives us the grace that we need. Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Romans 5:2 “through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
Which brings us to our second resource - His call to eternal glory. ~ we will cover this in our next post. Until then, Have a blessed day.
