  • God's Will And His Glory

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Mar 22, 2021

    How can being in God's Will contribute to His Glory? The story of Lazarus' death and how it brought glory to God.

  • What Does God's Will Have To Do With My Circumstances?

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Mar 15, 2021

    Circumstances aren’t always just circumstances. We have to learn to see God at work.

  • What Is God's Will For The Church?

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Mar 9, 2021

    One of the great gifts that God has given us is His Church. God uses our fellow believers to help us grow in Christ—and to know His Will.

    A Christian businessman’s job suddenly ended. He couldn’t imagine what he was going to do or why he was laid off. He said, “I prayed and asked God to show me if I should take that job, but I never heard anything. So, I took it.” A pastor friend asked him, “What did your wife think about you more

  • The Holy Spirit's Role In Knowing The Will Of God

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Feb 9, 2021

    There is a difference between our conscience and God’s Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows all of God’s plans and purposes for our lives, and He wants us to know God’s will.

  • The Bible And God's Will

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Feb 1, 2021

    The Bible is life’s operating manual. It teaches us how to live in every major issue we face in life. It’s a sure guide to success. Unfortunately, too many fail to read the instructions.

    Last time, we talked about God’s Will versus our will. We learned a little about predestination. And I tried to answer many of the questions about predestination. Does God choose us even if we don’t want Him to? Does God choose some people but not others? How can you know what God’s will and more

  • God's Will Versus Our Will

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Jan 25, 2021

    Do we have ANY choice or is every aspect of our lives already been predetermined by God? Does God choose us even if we don’t want Him to? Does God choose some people but not others? How can you know what God’s will and purposes are?

    Today I want to talk about God’s Will vs. Our Will. We are taught from the Bible that God gives us a free will. It is ours to choose. Sometimes what we choose is good and in the will of God, and other times what we choose is dead wrong. Maybe this message will answer a few of your questions. more

  • Don't Just Do Something - Sit There

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Jan 12, 2021
    based on 4 ratings

    Sometimes we need to get alone, be still, and listen to God. Then other times we need to put ACTION to our prayers.

    If I asked you what your favorite part of the Sunday morning worship is, I would probably get answers like, “I like the song service, I like the special music, I like the prayer time, and so on. One pastor actually asked some of his congregation that question and one person said it was the prelude more

  • Memorial Service For A Christian Woman

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Jan 12, 2021

    This was a celebration of the life of a woman who was ready to meet the Lord face-to-face. This person stated she was ready when the Lord called her home.

  • The Gift Of Christmas Peace

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Dec 21, 2020

    This message is written to help people distinguish the difference between Peace WITH God and the Peace OF God.

    “Behold, church family, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:10 –11). What good news! And don’t we need some good news for a change? The message today is about peace. I more

  • The Elements Of Advent

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Dec 8, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    This message helps to explain three of the four elements of ADVENT: Love, Joy, and Hope. The final element of Peace will be the topic for the following Sunday.

    As I sat down to put together my thoughts for this sermon, and after praying about it, I looked at the calendar and realized that this is one of those years that there are only 4 Sundays of Advent between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sometimes there are 5 Sundays but then there are years like 2020 more

  • Being A Soldier Of Christ

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Nov 16, 2020

    What does it take to be a soldier for Christ? This message ends with a bold statement of being a soldier for Christ and was delivered with soft background music. Very heart-touching.

    This past Wednesday was Veteran’s Day. I don’t want to let that day go by without honoring our veterans and thanking them for their service. After all, if it wasn’t for their service, we might not have the freedoms that we have. But in 2 Timothy 2: 1-4, Paul talks about being a soldier for more

  • Waiting Upon The Lord

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on May 11, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    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 by Jerry Cosper 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 by Jerry Cosper 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 by Jerry Cosper 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
