Jesus told Paul, “I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles.” Paul would be threatened by those with worldly dreams—by the Jews and Gentiles. They would seek to be a threat to his dreams. But God would rescue him from their threats. Christ rescued Paul from his sinfulness to follow God’s dream. He would protect him as he followed God’s dream. God will rescue you from your sinfulness to follow his dream. God does his greatest work in the greatest of sinners.
1 Timothy 1:15-17

15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners-of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. NIV


Paul became the chief of sinners by pursuing his own dream of how he thought the kingdom of God ought to be. He sought to excel his own ideas until he met Christ. Then he realized he was the chief of sinners.
