Occupation with Christ

Occupation with Christ is, therefore, the Alpha and the Omega of the Christian life; occupation with His death—that death which laid the foundation not only for our own redemption and deliverance, but also of the reconciliation of all things; occupation with Him in incarnation, when, though He were the Son, He learned obedience by the things which He suffered, when, as obedient and dependent Man, He found His meat in doing the Father’s will and in finishing His work, and thus glorified God in every detail of that wondrous life; and above all, occupation with Him in glory—the glorified Man—the center of all God’s counsels, and the object of all His delight.
