Sparks and suns

And all these [Old Testament examples], though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect. -Heb 11:39-40

Calvin comments:

If those on whom the great light of grace had not yet shone showed such patience in bearing their ills, what effect ought the full light of the gospel have on us? A tiny spark of light led them to heaven, but now that the sun of righteousness shines on us what excuse shall we offer if we still hold to the earth?
