Paul's Super-Focus

What fascinates me about the apostle Paul is his super-intense focus. I think his incredible focus may have come from the fact that "whoever is forgiven much loves much." Imagine running into Paul on the streets of Rome 5 years before his conversion. He probably would have made us puke. He was probably rude, proud, obnoxious and self-absorbed. Maybe when Paul remembered what he used to be like it made him cry. Maybe like John the Baptist he realized he was not worthy (not good enough) to bend down and untie Jesus' sandals. I think what kept Paul so super-focused and serving Christ was his remembering what he used to be like. He remembered how God gave him a brand new life. A life the exact opposite of the one he was living before he ran into Christ on the road to Damascus.
