Why do we study language? Some would argue that we need this study because people who know their language can make a lot of money. Others may say that good language training helps a person appear educated. The Christian knows that he should take his language study seriously because of God. Our God is a God of language and communication. He brought the world into existence through language (Gen.1:3), He made mankind in His image and called him to have dominion over the earth partly through his use of language (Gen. 1:28; 2:19-20), and He is redeeming this world to Himself through language (John 1:1-18). Christians are the instruments of God's redemption, and God has called us who love Him to use language for redemptive purposes. By taking language study seriously, a Christian may demonstrate obedience to the two most important commands in the Bible (Mark 12:29-31). The Christian who studies language shows that he loves God, who displays part of His glory in His use of language and in His gift of language to us. The Christian student also shows that he loves those around him, who will understand God's work of redemption only as they hear about it through human language.
