A sea of blessings

Christ has paid far more than we owed — as much more as a boundless ocean compared with a drop of water. Doubt not therefore, O man, when you see such a wealth of benefits; nor inquire how that spark of death and sin can be extinguished, when such a sea of blessings is let in upon it.

— John Chrysostom, quoted by George Smeaton in
The Apostles' Doctrine of the Atonement
