Love for Man9) Sharing the Happiness of God10) Occupation with the Lord Jesus Christ

  8. 10. Occupation with the Person of Jesus Christ (O.C.)Deut 6:5-9; Mat 22:37; Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27

  9. 1. O.C. is personal love for our Lord Jesus Christ through max Bible doctrine in the soul.Jer 9:23-24, 1 Cor 2:16; Eph 3:17-19; Phil 2:1-2, 5

  10. 1 Cor 2:16,“For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

  11. 2. O.C. is achieved when Bible Doctrine is the number one priority in your life.Col 3:1-2; 1 Peter 1:8

  12. 1 Pet 1:8, “And even though you have not seen Him, you love Him (Occupation with Christ); and though you do not see Him now but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with inexpressible happiness (+H) and full of glory.”

  13. Those who love Christ have made the Lord their role model, by learning His way of thinking. As a result, they have true happiness.

  14. 3. Two divine mandates with regard to O.C.

  15. a) Heb 12:2, “Be concentrating on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who because of the exhibited happiness, He endured the Cross and disregarded the shame (imputation of our sins), and He sat down at the right hand of God.”

  16. b) 1 Pet 3:15, “But sanctify (set apart as more important than anything else) the Lord Christ in your hearts.”

  17. 4. O.C. is the standard operating procedure for the mature believer.Heb 12:1-2

  18. 5. O.C. is illustrated by the Doctrine of Right Man / Right Woman. She is to be occupied with her right man as we are to be occupied with Christ.1 Cor 11:5-12; Eph 5:25-33

  19. 6. Occupation with Christ includes total dependence on grace provision and is related to both stability and inner happiness.Psa 16:8-9; 25:15; 37:4-5; 141:8; James 2:24-26

  20. Psa 16:8, “I have set the LORD continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will dwell securely.”

  21. 7. O.C. is also defined as fellowship with the Son. Phil 2:1-2, 5;1 John 1:5-7

  22. 1 Cor 1:9,“God (Father) is faithful, through whom you have been called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

  23. Our fellowship with Christ is infinitely more important than our fellowship with people.

  24. Christian fellowship is no substitute for O.C. Therefore, social intercourse with Christians is never a substitute for learning Bible doctrine.

  25. Eph 3:17,“So that Christ may be at home in your hearts through faith when you have been rooted and established in virtue-love (personal love for Christ).”

  26. 8. The attainment of O.C. is gradual. It is developed when our Lord becomes our role model, our celebrity.

  27. Eph 3:19,“And to come to know the love for Christ which goes beyond gnosis that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

  28. 1 Cor 2:16,“For who has known the thinking of the Lord that we should instruct Him; we have the thinking of Christ.”

  29. With a maximum love response to Jesus Christ, we are considered “a friend of God”.James 2:23; 2 Chron 20:7; Isa 41:8

  30. 9. O.C. means your motivation in life changes.

  31. How you are treated and loved by others, is no longer an issue. It is your fellowship with Christ that counts.

  32. You cannot change people to conform to your standards of treatment and love. But you can solve the problems of frustration through I.U. Love as a Problem Solving Device.

  33. Psa 118:9, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”See also Jer 17:5-7

  34. 10. O.C. results in God emphasis taking precedence over people emphasis.Col 3:2

  35. Fellowship with God is infinitely more important than fellowship with people. This means that you no longer live for yourselves but for Christ.

  36. 11. O.C. eliminates the human viewpoint of life.2 Tim 2:14-17 w/Phil 3:7-8

  37. 12. Characteristics and Results of O.C. in each stage of spiritual adulthood.

  38. a. In Spiritual Self-Esteem, "Christ formed in you", Gal 4:19. The result: "the love for Christ controls (occupies) us", 2 Cor 5:14.

  39. b. In Spiritual Autonomy, "Christ dwells (is at home) in your hearts", Eph 3:17. The result: "sanctifying the Lord Christ in your hearts", 1 Pet 3:15.

  40. c. In Spiritual Maturity, "Christ exalted in my body, whether by life or by death", Phil 1:20. The result: "for me, living is Christ and dying is profit", Phil 1:21.
