Robertson McQuilken's Promise

A little background to this story. When she was 58 years old, Muriel McQuilken was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. At the time, her husband, Robertson, was the president of Columbia Bible College and Seminary, world renowned as a New Testament scholar and speaker.

They had been married for 40 years. She lost her basic skills to speak, reason, dress and feed herself. In 1990, Robertson resigned his post and went home to care for her wife. He had to say “no” to his calling. His career. His ministry. This audio was from his resignation speech.

What shall we say in response to this? Many things, but at least this much: God will not call us to do something that violates what WE KNOW He’s called us to do already.
