Your Labor is not in Vain.

Your Labor is not in Vain.

Being tempted to take a short-cut today?  Tempted to practice an old habit (you know the old “go for what you know” routine), tempted to a step back, and eventually quit, or are you tempted to take over, make independent decisions, take credit, and ignore important others?
Step back, and meditate on I Cor.15:58: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.”
God does not consider you or your labor (“toil”) worthless.  The long hours, energetic, and selfless effort you give, is always noticed by the God.  In the Lord, you will receive a reward in this life and in the life to come.  Be encouraged, “your labor is not in vain.”

God Bless,

Super Bowl Weekend for the Church

Super Bowl Weekend for the Church

Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday is a time of sober reflection, and the highest level of celebration for believers all around the world.  This is Super Bowl weekend for the church.

Jesus died on the cross, and rose again from the dead so that our sins could be forgiven, and we can have an eternal love relationship with the living God (John 3:16).

As you reflect on this unconditional, “never been loved like this before,” love, respond to God’s love by sharing the message about Jesus with others,
Invite someone to church, pray for non-Christians to hear the message and put their faith in Jesus.
Finally, live the changed life for Jesus, be in God’s house for worship this weekend, and enjoy rich fellowship afterwards.
Check out Mtzionontario.com for our worship times.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

God’s Abundance for You.

God’s Abundance for You.

“He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, but he who pursues worthless things lacks sense (Prov. 12:11-12).  Instead of spinning into the misery of discontentment behind comparing your life, possessions, and opportunities with that of others, try life God’s way.  Take “your land” (what God gives you), and use God’s wisdom to consistently implement best practices (till your land) and enjoy the abundance God has for you (plenty of bread).
Stop worthless fantasizing about stuff, and diligently work for the abundance God has for you.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

God has Your Back!

God has Your Back!

When you step out on a limb for righteousness before God, He has your back.  God said: “Many seek the ruler’s favor, But justice for man comes from the LORD” (Prov. 29:26).
Speak truth in love, do right, be kind and tender hearted when doing good, forgive,  be patient, share the message about Jesus, pray for a miracle, and watch God. Remember, God is not obligated to explain how, He is obligated secure justice for you.
See you in church this weekend.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian Kennedy, Sr.

Need a Little Guidance Today?

Need a Little Guidance Today?

Stuck on something right now? Needed to deal with it in the past, and today it is back with vengeance?
Listen to how God personifies His wisdom in Proverbs 8:17: "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me."
Love, desire, receive, and use God's wisdom (Proverbs 8).
How? Stop, and show Him respect, and simply ask. Stop, back off, settle down, and honor God. Pray: "Lord forgive me for leaning on me. Please give me You wisdom and understanding." Immediately, God's navigation system will begin. Follow His prompts and you will arrive at God's perfect destination every time.
Worshipping God with others this weekend is a great way to honor God (set your clock up for daylight savings).

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Start the New Month with Daily Refreshment

Start the New Month with Daily Refreshment

Reading a chapter in Proverbs each day is a great way to bring refreshment into your life each day of the month.
Give God respect and watch Him navigate you through the storms,  destructive temptations, and give you victory this month.  “The fear of the Lord,” which is having respect, or reverence for God, is the starting point to receive knowledge and wisdom from God.  When we respect God, which is filled with love for God, you will enjoy God, and live such that God enjoys you.
God is your source for daily refreshment.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Are you Generous?

Are you Generous?

God said: “He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor” (Prov. 22:9).
It is one thing to give to yourself, or someone well off, but what about the poor?  What about someone less fortunate than you?
Try God on this one.  Be generous, share with someone in need, and watch God bless you.
Then, thank God for keeping His promise, and testify about God’s faithfulness.
Invite someone to church this weekend.

God Bless
