Holiness book

In February, I started reading a book called Holiness. Today I finally finished it! What an encouragement and exhortation to the pilgrim Christian who is still walking in this world. I found the last chapter "Christ is All" to be particularly sweet to the soul.

"Would you be holy? Then Christ is the manna you must daily eat, like Israel in the wilderness of old. Would you be holy? Then Christ must be the rock from which you must daily drink the living water. Would you be holy? Then you must be ever looking unto Jesus, looking at His cross, and learning fresh motives for a closer walk with God, looking at His example, and taking Him for your pattern. Looking at Him, you would become like Him. Looking at Him, your face would shine without your knowing it. Look less at yourself and more at Christ, and you will find besetting sins dropping off and leaving you, and your eyes enlightened more and more every day (Heb. 12:2; 2 Cor. 3:18)." pages 377-378
