Paul was made a chosen vessel.

As he was converted only through the deep love of the Lord, he did not refer any thing to his own worthiness, but referred everything to Christ,

saying, “For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain” (1 Cor. 15.9, 10).

He dwelt in the house (the camp) (Deut. 23.12), that he used to empty of its dwellers.

He dwelt in the mansions of Christ, after being used to wander in the forests like a wolf.

He was covered by God (Deut. 23.12),

when Christ appeared to him, and although he could see nothing, when his eyes were opened Acts 9.8,

yet he could see Christ, and could hear His voice inside himself.

(St. Ambrose)
