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.
