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.

Be Transformed not Conformed

'And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.' Romans 12:2

The world wants to change your mind to keep you from focusing on God, so it exerts pressure from without. But the Holy Spirit changes your mind by releasing power from within. Warren Wiersbe said 'If the world controls your thinking, you are a conformer; if God controls your thinking, you are a transformer.'

There are two ways we can renew our mind; first is by being in God's word. As we spend time meditating on God's Word and memorizing it, we learn more and more about God and we are more in tune to what God wants us to do. Second, would be our prayer life. As we spend time in prayer seeking God's will for our lives, surrendering our body, mind, and spirit to Him the more we will be able to know the will of God in our lives. Not my will, but thy will be done. To have a right relationship with God, we must start the day by yielding to Him our bodies, minds, and wills. Seek God First and everything else falls in place.
