"... Paul’s epistles, we “consider” all that is involved in his experience. He says of himself that he was “a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious; but (says he) I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly, in unbelief.” In the outset of his gospel career, though he had strong ties in influential circles, he says, “Immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood.” But he went to work, and cut those ties, and entered the service of Christ faithfully. In that service he takes up the idea of Christ, who says he was a chosen vessel, and, faithfully following Christ, he exhorts the brethren, saying, “Be ye followers of me.” Can we so walk as to invite brethren and sisters to follow us? We ought to do so, and in some measure surely we do. Paul is our example."
