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.

Show Compassion

We saw in our last post that Peter exhorted us to be of one mind in 1 Peter 3:8, now the verse goes on to tell us we are to be Compassionate towards one another. 
The words "having compassion" are the translation of a Greek word (συμπαοεῖς, sumpatheis, (soom-path-ace') which we get the word Sympathy; Meaning we are to be sympathetic, we should be willing to share in others' needs and being responsive to their feelings, having sensitivity and compassion towards others. - suffer with those who suffer - weep with those who weep - rejoice with those who rejoice. My friend, Unity cannot exist unless believers feel compassion and sympathy for one another. You cannot be seeking to get your own way not caring what happens to others and live in unity. So Unity demands sympathy, feeling for one another.
Romans 12:15 "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep." 
Galatians 6:2 "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." 
1 Corinthians 12:26 "And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it." 
We are to be of one mind having compassion towards one another. Join me tomorrow as we look at the third exhortation.
