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.

Every Day is a Gift

You ever think about time.  The Lord has given each of us twenty-four hours in a day, no more no less. How we spend the time in that day is up to us.
Psalms 118:24 says 'This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.'  Every day is a gift given to you from God.  Notice it says 'This is the day', it isn't talking about yesterday or tomorrow, it says this is the day, and as Christians we are to live our lives for Christ, so how can we maximize our day for the Lord?

First, we should read our Bible every day.  You cannot combat the enemies of this world on your own.  As you read the Bible, you will be equipped to face each day.  Second, pray every day. We need to be in communication with our Lord every day, talking with Him, praising Him, thanking Him, and asking Him to help us through our day. Through God's word and through talking with Him in prayer we can maximize our day according to His will in our lives.  I have found in my life that when I make time for Christ in the beginning of my day, continually pray during the day, and end my day with Christ, all other things fall into place. 

My friend, we are given twenty-four hours in a day, don't waste it, each second counts.  If at the end of the day you cannot see one thing that was done for Christ, it is a wasted day.  What is driving your life?  Is it the temporal things of this world or eternity?  Colossians 3:2 'Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth'.

Face each day asking the Lord to lead you in the way He wants you to go. Today is the most important day of your life, don't waste it - live it for Christ.  Rejoice and be thankful for the day Christ has given you.  As Martin Luther King Jr. said 'The time is always right to do what's right'.
