Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.Considering Paul’s history of persecuting believers, his choice to forget the past and move into the future is courageous—and a little audacious. Paul knows who he was before Jesus appeared before him in blazing light. Paul also knows that by upending his life, God has shown him immense grace. Paul discovers the truth about himself and God. And that revelation changes him.
Paul never sees himself as being superior to the apostles Jesus had called before the Ascension because Paul came to his vocation differently. The truth of his calling set Paul free to live a new life.
