Paul was ready to do anything needed to bring people to the truth about Jesus, even endure beatings, prison and anything else that came along including that famous thorn in the flesh):
2 Timothy 2:8-10 Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach. And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained. So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.
How many of us could lay claim to the same humility before God?
