An excerpt from “A God-man in Christ” entitled, “Allowing The Indwelling Christ To Make His Home In Our Heart And Feel At Home In Us” states: “Before we believed in the Lord, our heart loved many other things, was inclined toward sin, desired negative things, loved the world, and was passionate about anything else except God.
But when Christ came into us, He gave us a new heart – He renewed our heart! Now we have a new inclination toward God and the Word of God, we love the Lord and the saints, we are affectionate toward the Lord and the spiritual things, we delight in God, and we desire more of Christ and more fellowship with the brothers and sisters. This is our renewed heart after regeneration.”

Application: “The more we encounter grace, the more we are rooted in love. The more we are strengthened in our inner being by a growing trust in the love of Christ, the more our hearts and spirits are made tender and open to the deep and abiding presence of Christ with us and in us.” [Source: www.nacr.org/wordpress/3133/christ-dwelling-in-our-hearts-as-prayer by Juanita Ryan]
