The Language Of Perfect Love

Updated on June 24, 2013

Pure Love

I believe there is a language incapable of being spoken this side of eternity.

As a christian, it is only natural to want to share my love for Christ with everyone I meet, but the deeper my love grows, the more I realize how difficult it is to find the words to express how much he means to me.

Without Christ, the world has a tainted view of love and can only associate it with all things impure. I'm very aware of this as I try to describe the difference to those living in sin, and so I depend heavily upon the Holy Spirit to translate my earthly attempt into words that can be used to create a desire in others to feel what I feel.

In his Word, God uses a little child to help us understand what it means to have a relationship with him. Matthew 18:3 says, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

The dictionary uses words like simple, trusting, and innocent as synonyms for childlike. I think of the word, pure.

A child has the ability to love purely. No questions asked. No preconceived notions. No previous relationships affecting how they measure love. It's pure and real and genuine and unconditional. God knew we would all be able to identify with this as we all have gone through childhood.

Today is the nineteenth birthday of our first grandchild. When she was born, it was like Heaven to my husband and I. The love we immediately had for her was indescribable. I had the opportunity to spend every day with her and for the first three years of her life, devoted most of my time to her. I delighted in seeing her quickly fall in love with me. Not only was she the apple of my eye, but I was the apple of her eye also.

As she learned to talk, she began using a phrase that has meant more to me than words can express, but sounds silly to the outside world. Each time she would come to our house or we would go there, she was gleefully happy to see me. Now, as a toddler, what she was trying to tell me was that she assumed I was busy doing other things and how delighted she was to see me appear.

My name to her was Kma. So, when she saw me, she would gasp and say, "Kma...I taught you was..." To her and I, it meant, "Kma, there you are! I thought you weren't here...but there you are...and oh, how happy I am that I can see you." I wish now that I had it on video. I'd love to relive it over and over.

What heavenly words these still are to me. Long gone, but not forgotten. An expression of love in complete purity and unashamed innocence. Decent and wholesome. Her way of letting me know what deep love she felt for me. And though we said, "I love you" over and over again, this little comment described it perfectly to me.

My husband and I often talk of the inability to verbalize our love for Christ in earthly words. But our granddaughter's expression of love at the age of two, reminds us of the absolute, genuine feeling that God is seeking in his children.

How wonderful it is to say of our Heavenly Father, "There you are...and oh, how happy I am that I can see you."

Though I will continue to tell others of my personal love for Christ, how wonderful it will be to one day experience the language of perfect love face to face where no definition is needed.
