Regardless of whether or not one receives a personal call to holiness, each of us is innately aware of the existence of God
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)
