In a world filled with distractions and temporary gratifications, it is easy for us to lose sight of what truly matters. We often find ourselves chasing after the superficial, fleeting pleasures of life, only to be left empty and unfulfilled. However, there is a path to true fulfillment that lies in setting our affections upon glory.

Glory, in its purest form, represents the beauty, magnificence, and perfection that exist beyond our earthly existence. It is the ultimate goal of our souls, the very purpose for our existence. To set our affections upon glory is to redirect our desires, our ambitions, and our passions towards attaining that which is everlasting and transcendent.

But how do we go about setting our affections upon glory?

Recognizing the Transience of Earthly Pleasures

One of the first steps towards setting our affections upon glory is recognizing the transience of earthly pleasures. The temporary satisfaction that comes from material possessions, achievements, or fleeting moments of pleasure will never truly fulfill us.

By understanding that these worldly desires are merely transient, we can begin to shift our focus towards something greater, something that will stand the test of time.

Cultivating a Mindset of Abundance

Setting our affections upon glory also requires us to cultivate a mindset of abundance. Often, we fall victim to a scarcity mindset, believing that there is not enough to go around and that attaining glory is reserved for a select few.

However, the truth is that glory is available to everyone who seeks it earnestly. By adopting a mindset that believes in the abundance of possibilities and opportunities, we open ourselves up to the transformative power of setting our affections upon glory.

Embracing the Journey of Self-Discovery

Setting our affections upon glory is not a one-time decision but rather a lifelong journey of self-discovery. It requires us to reflect on our values, our purpose, and our deepest desires.

Through introspection and self-examination, we can uncover the unique gifts and talents that we possess and align them with the pursuit of glory. Embracing this journey allows us to tap into our true potential and experience a sense of fulfillment like never before.

Choosing Meaning over Materialism

Another crucial aspect of setting our affections upon glory is choosing meaning over materialism. Society often emphasizes the accumulation of wealth, possessions, and status as the path to happiness but, in reality, true fulfillment lies in pursuing purpose and leaving a meaningful impact on the world.

By shifting our focus towards making a positive difference, we align ourselves with the greater cosmic order and experience a profound sense of fulfillment.

Breaking Free from the Chains of Comparison

The societal pressure to conform and compare ourselves to others often leads us astray from the pursuit of glory. We waste valuable energy and time chasing after external validation and trying to match someone else's idea of success.

Setting our affections upon glory requires us to break free from the chains of comparison and focus on our individual paths. Embracing our unique journey and celebrating our own accomplishments allows us to fully embrace the pursuit of glory and experience true fulfillment.

Setting our affections upon glory is not an easy task in a world filled with distractions and superficial pleasures. However, it is a journey worth embarking on, as it holds the key to unlocking true fulfillment.

By recognizing the transience of earthly pleasures, cultivating a mindset of abundance, embracing the journey of self-discovery, choosing meaning over materialism, and breaking free from the chains of comparison, we can align ourselves with the pursuit of glory.

So, let us rise above the mundane and set our affections upon glory. In doing so, we will find our true purpose, unlock our full potential, and experience a sense of fulfillment that surpasses all else.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones stands as one of the preeminent preachers of the 20th century. An ardent opponent of liberalism and a defender of orthodoxy, “The Doctor’s” legacy is still being felt today throughout the Protestant world. This collection of 9 previously unpublished sermons, originally delivered during his final visit to the United States, challenges us to reevaluate the focus of our lives and the object of our affections. Covering topics such as prayer, evangelism, and the church, this timely anthology serves as a wakeup call to the church, exhorting all of us to remain faithful to the Word of God and fostering a spirit of renewed devotional fervor.
