Dr. J. Vernon McGee, Th.D.

God’s Wonderful Mercies

Transcript: God was merciful to David. And He will be merciful to you and me today. I had a fellow—I’d heard him speak down in Pershing Square years ago, deriding and ridiculing the Bible. I saw him in church one Sunday evening when I was pastoring in downtown Los Angeles. After service he came up to me and he says, “Preacher, I have a question to ask you. Why did God choose a man like David?” I said, “I’ll tell you why God chose a man like David. So that you and I would be able to come to Him. Because if God will take David, He might take you and He might take me.” And I said, “That’s the reason.” The “sure mercies of David”—how wonderful they are.

About Church of the Open Door
Built in 1914, the 4000-seat Church of the Open Door was conceived by R. A. Torrey who had come to Los Angeles to start a Bible institute (now known as Biola University) similar to Moody Bible Institute. Other pastors have included Louis T. Talbot (1932–1948) and J. Vernon McGee (1949–1970). The church is strictly non-denominational, though Evangelical. Its mission was to reach the lost of Los Angeles, which was reflected in the name ‘Church of the Open Door’ based on two passages of Scripture:

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” - Jesus Christ, John 10:9 KJV

“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” - Jesus Christ, Revelation 3:8 KJV
