Have you ever wondered what made St Paul tick? What was it that drove him to achieve so much for Jesus? He was a man with great passion and energy, but these were only secondary to his real power, because he thought himself to be rather ordinary. He was much like a ‘clay pot’ or a take away coffee cup. Paul saw that his power came from a treasure within. It gave him resilience, grace and winsomeness. While on the outside he may be fragile, inside he was being renewed each day…becoming like Christ. And the great news is that he expected that this would be our experience too!
