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.

Looking back

As the year comes to an end, we look back on everything that happened during the year. We see through life's lens the Lord's presence in our lives, leading and guiding us throughout the year.

We are Thankful for the strength that The Lord gave us as we went through various trials; thankful for a peace in our hearts through tragedy and struggles; and thankful for the many blessings given us throughout the year. We praise you Lord that you were with us every moment of a day.

The most important thing to ask ourselves as we look back would be: Has our relationship with God grown since the beginning of the year; Have we lived our lives, to the best of our ability with the opportunities God had set before us for Christ; Did we give God our best or were we preoccupied with worldly things; Did we give our time - spending quality time with the Lord in Bible study and prayer; Were we aware of His presence in our daily lives?

Colossians 3:15-17 'And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.'

Then as we look forward to the coming of the new year we are reminded of Proverbs 27:1 says 'Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.' We need to live a day at a time as we don't know what the next day will hold. We never know when our last day may be, when the rapture will come and we stand before our Lord and answer to Him as to what we did in His name. My friend, this life, as we know it here on Earth, is just a temporary home. We never know when the Lord shall return; therefore, we should always live each day as unto the Lord. Be ready, be faithful and live each day as unto the Lord. Let's make 2016 a year of spiritual growth, of pursuing a deeper relationship with God. Let us decrease and the Lord increase as we draw closer to Him.
