Our proper occupation is knowing and loving God
Our proper occupation is knowing and loving God, and, not least, delighting in such knowledge and love. We have been made in the image and likeness of God for the sake of this knowledge and love; and by means of them we are made new and formed again to God's image and likeness: through understanding to the image, through form of life to the likeness. Yet notice: in order to be formed again and come to share God's nature we must first shape our life according to Christ's.
