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 Cares For You

There is so much sorrow in the world right now!  It is so comforting to know that we are not alone, that we have a Savior who cares for us and is there for us to help relieve the pressures life throws at us.  Let us look at scripture... 1 Peter 5:7 'casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.'   
Let's break this verse down:  
The word 'care' in the original language means anxiety/worry.  My friend, when difficult times come our way, our natural response is to worry or be anxious, but listen to what the Apostle Peter is saying -  “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”  The word “cast” in the original language means “having deposited with”.  It refers here to a direct and once-for-all committal to God of all that would give us concern; the word “all” has the idea not of every worry that comes along, but the whole of their worries.  In other words we are to give the whole of our cares, our anxiety, our worry to God, don't just give part of it but every part of the worry/anxiety.  

The result will be that when those worries come up we will not worry but cast them over to God.  It all comes down to knowing that God is in control, He knows what we are going through and promises to see us through them.
