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.

Jesus, our living hope

No matter what pain or trial we face in this life, we know that it is not our final experience. Jesus offers us a living hope, a confidence in his promise of eternal life. Because of this hope we can endure persecution and suffering.  
 
Note how our inheritance is described in 1 Peter 1:4: "to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you". ~ Incorruptible - Undefiled - Does not fade away ... Incorruptible means that nothing can ruin it, undefiled - it cannot be stained or cheapened in any way, it will never fade or decay it is eternal.

Our promised inheritance comes from our loving Father. We cannot earn an inheritance; it is a gift. The Jews had looked forward to an inheritance in the Promised Land of Canaan (Numbers 32:19; Deuteronomy 2:12; 19:8). Christians now look forward to a family inheritance in the eternal city of God. God has reserved the inheritance for those who have accepted Christ as their savior.

It is easy To accept God's Gift: "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." ~ Romans 10:9

Here is a sample prayer:
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen." ~

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

It is not about a Religion, it is about having a Personal Relationship with God.
