Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus.
(Ephesians 1:1, NIV)

An apostle: one sent to represent another,
to speak and act in that one’s interests,
not his or her own.

One appointed
like Paul on the road to Damascus.

One called,
not to honor or achievement,
but to obedience and service;
totally dedicated,
totally absorbed in the task.

One who ignores
personal interests,
seeming success,
seeming failure.

One who remembers the One who
appointed, and
empowered him.

Jesus Christ,
examine me,
search my thoughts,
refocus me on You.
Use me as Your apostle.
