Saved? Or Being Saved?

Fr. Boyer told this story about a time he was sitting on an airplane while it was loading passengers. A young man sat down next to him and noticed his cleric collar.
The young man asked Father, “Are you saved?”
Father replied, “Well, I would prefer to think that I am being saved.”
The young man asked, “What do mean?”
Father said, “I hope that I am more saved today than the day I was baptized.”
The young man nodded quizzically in half agreement.
Then Father noticed a ring on the young man’s finger and asked, “Are you more married today than on the day of your wedding?”
