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.

Thank you Lord

'Giving Thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ' Ephesians 5:20
 
Keep in mind that Paul was a prisoner when he wrote those words, and yet he said to be thankful always for all things. In the original Greek language 'Giving thanks' is in the present active participle - meaning it is to be a repeated action. Paul is telling us to continually give thanks for all things.

On our own it is hard to be thankful for all things, but Paul understood the hardships of life. It is not on our own strength that we can continually give thanks, it is only through the help of God living in you that you can give thanks for all things! Remember that God has a plan and a purpose for your life and that He is in control. Giving thanks helps us to experience the fulness of God and deepens our relationship with Him.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says 'in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you'. We all have a choice to make; you can either be bitter of your circumstances or be in the will of God and be thankful in everything. Live every day for Christ!
