Something can be said to be an obsession when that's all you talk about. An engulfing passion is worthy of all your attention though. Especially when He is everything.
Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised before by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was made of the descendants of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: Among whom are you also the called of Jesus Christ: To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; Romans 1:1-9
I think Paul was more than a little obsessed with the Divine. You could say that he was "taken away" with his theology. It seems he lost his head. Literally. I can picture his well-meaning friends warning him, "Paul, you'd better get a grip on it before you lose your head!" :) Since "He" was all Paul talked about, it is safe to say that he was wrapped up in the "Spiritual."
