B.I.G.: Basking in God Sermon Series Completed

To bask is to “lie in or be exposed to a pleasant warmth; to enjoy a pleasant situation.” Sadly, we have found ourselves basking in things that promise light but have no heat; things that promise pleasure but have no substance. It’s time for God’s people dream and to live BIG–where we bask in God and all that He has shown Himself through His Son.

Sweet Jesus (Doris Akers)

The first time I heard this was in the summer of 1994. I was a summer music minister at the First Baptist Church of Old Homosassa, FL. One of the senior adult members there, Mr. Munn, let me borrow this VHS tape. It was the first Gaither Homecoming tape. Many of these singers were struggling to make ends meet when Bill Gaither brought them together. They were reintroduced to the public and ended not only financially sound but with some dignity.Here is Doris Akers (composer of “Sweet, Sweet Spirit”) singing “Sweet Jesus.”
