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.

Be Humble-minded

So far we have covered four exhortations by Peter in our previous posts - to be of one mind, having compassion for one another, loving as brothers and sisters in Christ and to be Tenderhearted. Now we see the fifth exhortation Peter gives us in 1 Peter 3:8 - to be courteous. 
The Greek word here (ταπεινόφρων, tapeinophrōn) means "Be humble-minded". To be humble-minded is to think of others ahead of ourselves. 
Matthew 23:12 "And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
1 Peter 5:6 "Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time."
