I Didn't Feel Called - Jungle Missionary Joil Marbut

Posted by Wisdom Moon on 16 February 2016

Here's a powerful message from Joil Marbut, a Jungle Missionary in Ecuador, sharing about how he didn't feel called to the mission field. He prayed for God to send someone, but God spoke to Him: "But if you don't, then who will?"

Some of the key quotes from the video: (click on a quote to tweet it)

"I think the question we have to ask is: are we Not Called to do something?"

"We cannot deny the Great Commission...The need is the call."

"Some of you have pretext for obedience."

"Partial obedience is complete disobedience."

"I'm just ignorant enough to believe that if He says it, that I can do it."

We Don't Create, We RE-Create

Our reasoning goes like this: If God is the Creator who made us to be like Him, then we too have the ability, and Divine permission to create. I actually prefer to say, "RE-create."

I say RE-create, because whatever we human beings create is with materials that already exist, raw materials that the Eternal Creator of the Universe alone brought into existence before we ever came to be. HE, unlike US created ex-nihilo (out of nothing). WE, on the other hand, can only recreate from materials which already exist. Nothing is new under the sun. The only thing that is new is that we are able to take existing elements and combine them or reconfigure them in unique ways and come up with novel shapes and forms.
