Every act of obedience to Christ, every act of self-denial for His sake, every trial well endured, every victory gained over temptation, is a step in the march to the glory of final victory. (RH, Feb. 5, 1895)
If God, the great Master- worker, is with us, we shall withstand the great temptations that are to try us, and we shall remain loyal and true to principle. We shall achieve victories which the littleness of our faith has led us to regard as impossible. (RH III, 627)
Every time you are called upon to meet temptation, it is your duty to obtain a victory through the grace of Christ; and when you endure temptation in the strength of Christ, you are a conqueror. (RH II, 236)
A life spent in resisting temptation, in self-denial, in diligence in good works, in gaining victories over sin, will shine forth amid the darkness of the world, and will glorify God. (RH II, 458)
True prayer takes hold upon Omnipotence, and gains the victory. Upon his knees the Christian obtains strength to resist temptation. (ST IV, 220)
