John Calvin (1509–1564) on God's Boundless Display of Goodness in the Gospel Call

"When he [God] first shines with the light of his word on the undeserving, he gives a sufficiently clear proof of his free goodness. Here, therefore, boundless goodness is displayed, but not so as to bring all to salvation, since a heavier judgment awaits the reprobate for rejecting the evidence of his love."
John Calvin, Institutes, 3.24.2.
