“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself”
Paul is talking about his future trip to Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit is leading him to a place where he will face trials, and chains. Imagine knowing that future pain and beatings, hunger, thirst, and loneliness are awaiting you. “But NONE of these things move me”. Ultimately Christ was always what Paul was looking to and hoping for. There was nothing that compared to Him. We have the same beautiful God to hope in. Press on!
