In order to really say not to the desires of temptation, we need to develop a stronger desire for God. Lesser urges can only be expelled by stronger ones. Puritan Thomas Chalmers called this the “expulsive power of a new affection.” Our affections for idols are brought under control only when they are taken captive by a stronger, more enchanting affection.
