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.

Equipped with God's Word

Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin.'
1 Peter 4:1 ...


The Greek word translated "arm yourselves" was used of a Greek soldier putting on his armor and taking his weapons. The noun of the same root was used of a heavily-armed foot-soldier who carried a pike and a large shield as opposed to a soldier who was lightly armed. The Christian needs the heaviest armor he can get, to withstand the attacks of the enemy of his soul. Ephesians 6:10-18 'Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes...' (Belt of truth; Breastplate of Righteousness; Shield of Faith; Helmet of Salvation; Sword of the Spirit - word of God).

We need to be vigilant to make sure that our minds are focused on heavenly things, that we keep our minds pure. ~ Philippians 4:8 'Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.'

My friend, To arm ourselves with the word of God, we need to be in the word of God daily. We need to make sure that our lives glorify God, that something in the 24hr period counts for eternity. - Only one life twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last.
