The Expulsive Power of a New Affection (Thomas Chalmers)

I'm preparing to preach at our church in a couple of weeks time on 2 Corinthians 3. Approaching that I've found myself drawn back to Thomas Chalmers' famous sermon on the expulsive power of a new affection (pdf) if you've not read it, I'd highly recommend it.
"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. Thus it is, that the freer gospel, the more sanctifying is the gospel; and the more it is received as a doctrine of grace, the more will it be felt as a doctrine according to godliness."
