Regardless of whether or not one receives a personal call to holiness, each of us is innately aware of the
existence of God (Rom 1:19-23).
For example, Barnabas and Paul speak of Creation, weather and bountiful harvests testifying
to God's existence (Acts 14:15-17), and human history shows
that all early cultures had some form of theism albeit involving multiple deities.
In another example, all human beings, at some point in life, will consider at least one of
these existential questions:
How was I created?
Why was I created?
How did I become moral? (How did morality originate?)
What happens when I die?
Whether it is natural phenomenon or about one's origin, meaning, morality or end, the objective pursuit of
the answers to these questions will lead one to God. Jesus'
parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Costly Pearl
touches on this very issue of the seeking man.
Peter makes clear, "The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is
patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance."
(2 Pet 3:9)
