Speaking Our Heart Language

My friend was born in Indiana. He met his wife while teaching in Brazil. His native language is English; hers is Portuguese.

One day I mentioned a disagreement between my wife and I. So he mentioned a disagreement recently discussed by him and his wife. Since I knew they purposely maintained the use of both languages in their household, I playfully asked in which language the “discussion” had occurred.

He explained, “She was speaking in English, to be sure I’d understand. I was speaking in Portuguese, to be sure she’d understand.”

God has communicated to mankind in various ways. His creation reveals truth. The prophets added revelation. But the ultimate communication from God to man was when God, the Son became man.

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us….” John1:14a

“God …hath …spoken unto us by his Son….” Hebrews 1:1-2

“Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God … took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men ….” Phi. 2:5-7
