  • Waiting Upon The Lord

    Contributed on May 11, 2020

    There is no shortage of God’s power, might, and strength. Our way is not hidden from Him. He has not forgotten about us. He will make His strength available to us, if we but trust Him. AND WAIT.

    Waiting on the Lord entails patient faith and is rewarded by His strength. This past week we experimented here at the church with livestreaming on our church Facebook page. I’m not sure if you saw that post. We are learning how to film the service LIVE when we finally do come back to church for more

  • Avoid Being Frustrated

    Contributed on May 11, 2020

    Frustration is nothing new. We must remember that it is our faith in God that will bring the victory. So, we patiently wait for God's plan to come about.

    Getting tired. Getting bored. Getting uneasy. Tension is growing. Anxiety has our hearts stirred. You can't wait to go on vacation but you’re uncertain of how to do it. How to go about it safely. Does any of this describe your feelings right now? All this frustration is nothing new. more

  • Mothers Day - Motherhood And Mary

    Contributed on May 4, 2020

    Even the best mothers are concerned with the conflicting currents flowing through them. I am sure that mothers contend with more of a degree of tension when it comes to being a parent, a mother. Then the Lord brought to mind, Mary, the mother of Jesus.

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. This is your special day. But for some reason, when pastors across the country are asked about their Mother’s Day sermon, the largest consensus admits that a Mother’s Day sermon is the hardest of all sermons to put together. I’m not exempt from that more

  • The Hope We Have

    Contributed on Apr 22, 2020

    This is a brief message that was preached at a Sonrise service on Easter morning.

    Good morning and God’s blessing to you from SEBC here in San Antonio. I want to testify to you today that it doesn’t matter if you WHO are part of this celebration are Catholic, or Methodist, or Baptist, or non-denominational. How we worship, what methods or music we use to praise our God is not more

  • Does Jesus Weep For You?

    Contributed on Apr 1, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    This message is for Palm Sunday and causes one to put himself in the crowd with Jesus as he wept for Jerusalem. It answers the question of why, exactly, did Jesus weep.

    Once again, good morning from SEBC. I hope this message finds you all doing well. I want to encourage you all to hang in there. I can’t wait until we turn on the news and hear, “The Corona virus has been beat.” But today finds us all still being urged to stay at home and, would you believe it, more

  • Thank You, Mom, For Being Strong For Me

    Contributed on May 4, 2020

    It almost brings tears to my eyes when I watch the commercials where the child is growing up and is leaving home for college, or to get married and live in another city. I think about how difficult it must have been for my mom to watch me drive off to college in another city. And then later to more

  • Grandma's Hands

    Contributed on Mar 23, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Grandma’s Hands When I stand at the graveside for an elderly person, I think about the life they have lived, that dash between the birth date and date of death. I think about all they have seen, all they have experienced. And I think about this story that is told: Grandma, some 90+ years, more

  • A Few More Hours

    Contributed on Jan 23, 2013

    A FEW MORE HOURS A young lady busied herself getting ready for a blind date. He had promised dinner at an exclusive downtown restaurant with live music and dancing. Wanting to make a good first impression she had taken the day off work. She cleaned her apartment; she went out that afternoon more

  • Life After Death

    based on 3 ratings

    LIFE AFTER DEATH It's good to remember what stories you have told so that they don't come back to haunt you. A young man's boss asked him, "Boy, do you believe in life after death?" "Yes, sir," the young man answered. The boss said, "Well that's good, because about more

  • Hot Air

    Contributed on Mar 7, 2012

    HOT AIR When we were building this sanctuary we were discussing whether to put paper towel dispensers in the new rest rooms or those hot-air hand dryers. I strongly recommended the paper towel dispensers because of a story I heard about at another church. They installed the hot-air hand more
