Many Have Never Heard

Paul continues his rhetorical questioning by asking what the possibility of belief is if a person has never heard the truth. Think about it: ignorance does not mean a lack of intelligence it's just a lack of awareness or knowledge on a subject. Have you ever met someone who has never heard the name Jesus? A person cannot believe in someone or something that they do not realize exists.

There are more than 1.5 billion humans currently alive who have never heard the name of Jesus. They cannot believe if they've never heard. Pray right now for the role you will play in getting this knowledge to them.

What must be true if a person is to believe in Jesus for salvation?

Salvation Requires Trust

Jesus death on the cross was and is sufficient payment for the penalty every human has incurred because of sin. The apostle Paul's question in this verse, however, is logical. He asks, "What is the possibility that someone would ask another being for help if they didn't believe that that being could actually help them?"

To call on someone, one must believe in that person, and to "believe" in that person, one has to trust them. As Paul asks, how can they call if they haven't believed?

Ask God to give you more understanding in this truth today as you meditate on this verse. What must first be true in order to call upon Jesus for salvation?
