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.

Peace guards our heart


In Christ we have an overwhelming peace through the storms in our life! 'Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.' ~ John 14:27

To the world, peace has a negative side; they only enjoy peace when there is an absence of trouble, how often is that, right! As Christians, we enjoy peace in spite of the trials because of Christ's presence in our lives! It is a peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7)

To the world, peace is something you hope for or work for; but to the Christian, peace is God's wonderful gift, received by faith. 
People in the world walk by sight and depend on the externals, but Christians walk by faith and depend on the eternals. Peace involves the heart and mind. 'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.' ~Isaiah 26:3

Wrong thinking leads to wrong feeling, and before long the heart and mind are pulled apart and we are strangled by worry. As Paul said 'and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.' ~ Philippians 4:7.
