The Expulsive Power of a New Affection by Thomas Chalmers

Thomas Chalmers’ sermon The Expulsive Power of a New Affection has proven to be extremely helpful to Christians who are eager to overcome sinful desires. In it, Chalmers suggested that all men live in a state of constant desire. We all desire something at any given moment. It is impossible not to desire something for even a single second. In our fallen condition, the object of our hearts’ desires will always be the sinful allurements of the world. We may come to know the vanity of these things, but we will inevitably turn from one empty desire to another until a power outside of us enables us to desire God as the object of supreme value.
