Take Heed Lest You Fall

I preached a message on 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 in Southern Seminary’s chapel yesterday. Video above, and audio below.

In my conclusion, I referred to an old sermon titled “The Expulsive Power of a New Affection,” and I mispoke by attributing the sermon to Thomas Cranmer. I meant to say that the sermon comes from Thomas Chalmers. If you are interested in reading it, you can do so here. Chalmers’ sermon is a meditation on 1 John 2:15. His basic point is this:

The best way of casting out an impure affection is to admit a pure one; and by the love of what is good to expel the love of what is evil.

I couldn’t agree more. May God give is the grace to replace the love of our idols with the love of Christ.
