Who do People See in You?

Who do People See in You?

When her husband lost his dad, he married her, and his mom lived with them for 10 years, and then her husband died. Her husbands brother also died. The mother-in law planned to move back home, and encouraged her to return to her family, and to her gods. She refused saying:"...Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God..."(Ruth 1:16-17) NLT
Ruth, saw the Living God through Naomi, her mother in law's life.  
Who do people see in you?
Christian's, help people see Jesus
through the way you think, your actions and your speech.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Hanging Out?

Hanging Out?

Today God reminded me afresh to hang out with the right people: “He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm” (Prov. 13:20).
Christian’s be loving around all people for the gospels sake (Matt. 5:16), and make sure your inner circle consists of people who catapult you into growth and excellence for God’s glory. Who are you hanging with?
Our youth are hanging out with Six University of California schools for an information fair Saturday 9/14/19, from 9:00 to 1:00 pm. Come by and hang out.
God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

We Remember


Eighteen years ago, our nation was traumatized as we watched the twin towers collapse. A total of 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington,
DC and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Today, as we remember the families who lost loved ones, and who still deal with the pain of 9/11/01, let’s pray, share the love of Jesus, say something if we see something, and
spread kindness to counteract the evil around us (Gal. 6:10). 

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Compassion for Others

Compassion for Others.

When tragedy strikes people’s lives, do you have compassion (you feel with them)or do you blend people’s pain and distress into the next news report?
Jesus showed compassion for the people in Matt. 9:36-38, because they were beat down and stressed out behind religious oppression.
As followers of Jesus, let’s “feel with” people as they face the aftermath of hurricanes, shootings, etc.
MT Zion Ontario will respond to the hurricane disasters through the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Teams.
Christians, doing something meaningful will help. Just make sure you connect with a credible group. Oh yes, please include prayer in your response.
Last thing, Mt Zion Ontario will have an open baptism at our 97th Church Anniversary on 9/15/19. Anyone who wants to get baptized is welcome. Call 909-983-2411 x 223 to sign-up.
God Bless,

Do You Block or Channel Blessings?

Do You Block or Channel Blessings?

The children of Israel suffered defeat with 37 deaths because Achan, took some property under the ban in the defeat of Jericho (Joshua 6-7). He blocked their blessings. Have you, or are you doing something right now that is displeasing to God, and is causing pain for others?
Don't take chances. Confess your sins before God, and get clean, and
stay clean before God (I John 1:8-9). Be a channel of blessings for others. Lead your family to a meaningful worship service this weekend. Tell someone about Jesus, pray with someone, help a needy person, be kind, forgive someone, etc.(Galatians 6:10). Be a channel of blessings!
God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
PS: Pray for those struggling with cancer and other cruel diseases.

What’s God’s Good For You?

What’s God’s Good For You?
As you decide which diet, exercise program, childcare, school, job, neighborhood, investment, vacation, church, etc. is good for you, include God’s good for you: "Now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require from you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to keep the LORD'S commandments and His statutes which I am commanding you today for your good” (Deut. 10:12-13).
Get to church and worship God with others, stimulate others and be stimulated to love and good works, hear what God says through His Word, pray, and leave built up in the faith. This is for your good.
God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
