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.

New Year's Resolution

Soon 2016 will come to an end and we are faced with a brand new year. Many will start to make plans and resolutions for what they will do in the new year. 
 
James 4:13-14 'Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.'

My friend our plans are always tentative because we never know what God has in store for us. The Key is to keep God in our plans. We should say 'If it be the Lord's will we will do such and such.' James goes on to say that life is just a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. This is a perspective that all believers should have. This life, as we know it here on Earth, is just a temporary home. We never know when the Lord shall return; therefore, we should always live each day as unto the Lord. 

The only resolution we need to make is that we grow more and more in our Christian lives and that we are open to the opportunities that God presents to us. Don't leave God out of your plans, live for Him.
