Have you ever just thought about the beauty of language. Letters that represents sounds and come together to form words that have meanings and uses. And then these words come together to form sentences and paragraphs and books that hold so much knowledge, and experience, and creativity, and imagination, and truth.
We have varying statements and phrases that when translated from one language to another can have different means but even within one particular language a single word with different stresses, pronunciations or situations could mean different things.
Danger (English). Merci (French). Kedu (Igbo)
On this day of days, we are told in the Gospel that,
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
This Word, this Jesus Christ, is a heavenly language by which we communicate with the heavenly Father, with love, with all made things, with the light (which is both a particle and a wave) that suppresses any darkness we encounter.
Words exist to aid communication. As my Journalism teacher always told us we are trying to pass across a message. Everything is trying to pass across a message, a service, a knowledge, an experience. Even the universal constant language mathematics which through Physics and Chemistry is the language of all matter, it communicates constants and phenomena in their fundamental forms. So maths is also a language that is part of the Word, and all the mysteries and all the truths contained in it where there from the beginning and at Christmas that Word was made Flesh “that life was the light of all mankind.”
So we are joyful, we are enlighten, we are illuminated…we are all the words that show a euphoria beyond understanding because
“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of graceand truth.”
Now you know why this season is Jolly, now you know my joy…I am now a son of God. Amen. Hosanna. God’s peace.
