The Importance of Speech

Human speech is possible because God made man in his image, in his likeness. Human speech imitates divine speech and is analogous to it. Not only so, but speech in human language can be used and actually is used by both God and man to speak to one another (note the interchanges in Gen 3:9-19). In fact, language is a principal mode through which God and human beings bring to expression and promote the personal, spiritual, and responsible relationship that they enjoy with one another.”
