Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: Christ, and rely upon Him for grace and salvation. Apart from Christ you cannot effectually conquer this or any sin. "Without Me," He says," ye can do nothing." The very first step on the road to victory is to trust your soul to a mighty and merciful Saviour; you must know Him as your Friend and Redeemer. You must have a conscience at rest though the cleansing of His precious blood. You must have the peace of God to rule in your heart. But, perhaps, you are a follower of Christ, you have believed in Him, and yet you find temper a snare to you. What shall I say to you? Try very constantly to realise the nearness and the presence of your Lord. If there were some one in the room whom you greatly respected, and whom you would be sorry to grieve in any way, would not this prevent your yielding to passion, or your uttering loud, angry words? If he were not present, some slight provocation might put you off your guard: but your friend being near, and able to see you, would lead you to exercise a wise restraint. Now, will you remember that there is always some one in the room? The unseen Friend, the Lord Jesus, who has loved you with an everlasting love, who gave Himself to die for your sake, He is most truly, though invisibly, present. He is near you in loving-kindness, ready to help you and comfort you at all times. But He marks the clouded brow and angry look. He hears the sullen or hasty word. He sees and hears all, and it grieves Him exceedingly that one naming His name should thus bring dishonour upon it. Therefore cherish continually the sense of His presence. Believe that He is by your very side. Look for the continual help of the Holy Spirit. He can beat down the unruly spirit, and bestow upon you the grace more
