Excerpt

It is not easy to be a  man!

Christ is more than a teacher. A teacher shows us lofty qualities and  attainments — and then leaves us in hopeless weakness in the dust. But Christ is  Helper, Friend, Savior — as well as Teacher. He shows us what true manliness is      — and then comes into our life and inspires us to strive after the things  which He commends; and then breathes His life into us to help us to be  what He teaches us to be.

It is not easy to be a man     — a true, noble,  Christlike man. It means continual struggle, for enemies of manliness  meet us at every step! Every inch of the way must be won in battle. It  means constant restraint and repression of sin — for the ‘old man’ in us must be  subdued and kept under control. It means constant, painful discipline — for the  powers of nature are evil and unruly, and hard to tame and control. It means  unending toil and self-denial — for we must climb ever upward, and the  way is steep and rugged, and SELF must be trampled to death under our feet as we rise to higher life! It is hard to be a true man — for all the odds seem  against us. But Christ lives, and He is Helper, Friend, and Guide — to every man  who truly receives Him as Lord and Master.
