A New Heart

Cardo is a Latin term given to the main north-south thoroughfare in all ancient roman cities.
It was the heart of the town, the center where all the activity happened.
Now for the Romans, the activity wasn’t so good. Their motto was everything to excess.
It’s a good picture of the unregenerate heart.
Think about it. Before you knew Christ, your life revolved around the things of the world. As Paul wrote, you lived to gratify the desires of the flesh.
But all that changed the day you received Christ. He gave you a new heart where Christ now dwells through faith.
He cut away that old life ruled by the flesh, buried it and then raised you to live a new life. One with a heart that is now centered in him.
