In the Days of Youth

February 18, 2024

Solomon’s youth was characterized by a fervent love for God and a faith untainted by the pollution of compromise. So he appeals to young people: “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh when thou shalt say, ‘I have no pleasure in them.’”

Get ready to fight the good fight against legalism in Galatians. When this letter was written, it defended the gospel of Christ from people who wanted to reduce it to rules. Not surprising, Galatians has provided the backbone for several great spiritual revivals around the world. Freedom, we learn, is a serious fight. Allow grace to revolutionize your own life through these seven lessons from Dr. J. Vernon McGee.

(Ecclesiastes 3) The Industrial Revolution may have transformed the world, yet now we’re dependent upon these very machines, to the point that we feel we could never live without them! But where is God in all of this?

(Ecclesiastes 1) Looking for meaningful, happy lives, people today turn to seminars, retreats, and self-help books. When one system fails they go on to the next, believing that their persistence will lead them to the right formula. Solomon in the Book of Ecclesiastes did the same thing.

(Philippians 4:6, 7) Anxiety shines a spotlight for us on how much we need the Lord. That's what Dr. McGee reminds us of as we explore God's Word and discover His solution to the things that keep us up at night. Be willing to do this one thing and be ready to receive God's unexplainable peace.

(Philippians 3) What really happened on the Damascus Road?

(Philippians 1:21) Just as physical life begins with a birth, spiritual life begins with a birth.” That's the important truth we'll hear in this study of Philippians 1:21.

(Genesis 3) What is Christmas? When and where did it begin? While the answers may seem obvious, Dr. McGee's thoughts on the matter may surprise you. Celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, by traveling to an unexpected place—way back to the Old Testament book of Genesis—where we see that Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. That’s the real Christmas story that begins with Adam and Eve and goes down through the centuries.

(Proverbs 11:15) Our recent economic crisis in the U.S. has crippled banks as they reeled from the effect of homeowners who found themselves upside down in their loans and simply abandon their properties to the banks to deal with.

About Dr. J. Vernon McGee

John Vernon McGee was born in Hillsboro, Texas, in 1904. Dr. McGee remarked, "When I was born and the doctor gave me the customary whack, my mother said that I let out a yell that could be heard on all four borders of Texas!" His Creator well knew that he would need a powerful voice to deliver a powerful message.

After completing his education (including a Th.M. and Th.D. from Dallas Theological Seminary), he and his wife came west, settling in Pasadena, California. Dr. McGee's greatest pastorate was at the historic Church of the Open Door in downtown Los Angeles, where he served from 1949 to 1970.

He began teaching Thru the Bible in 1967. After retiring from the pastorate, he set up radio headquarters in Pasadena, and the radio ministry expanded rapidly. Listeners never seem to tire of Dr. McGee's unique brand of rubber-meets-the-road teaching, or his passion for teaching the whole Word of God.

On the morning of December 1, 1988, Dr. McGee fell asleep in his chair and quietly passed into the presence of his Savior.
