Sunken Sailboats and a Sufficient Savior

If you’re captaining a sailboat which capsizes and you’re subsequently thrown into the water, die, and sink to the bottom of the sea, it is better to hear “It is finished; you are now made alive” than “I’ve done my part, now you do yours.”

If you’re a two year-old child playing in the road when a truck is driving by, it is better that your father runs into the road and plucks you out of danger than that your father stands on the sidewalk and leaves you to your own devices and desires, hoping you make the right choice.

If you’re a husband to a beautiful wife, it is better that your love for her is special, intimate, and specific, rather than generic, distant, and general.

It is good to be a Calvinist.
