Jesus Christ = Adorable!

I was reading the Valley of Vision last night, looking at some of the prayers. In one, Christ was referred to as ‘adorable’. I don’t know about you, but when I hear that word, I think of something cute… like a baby. How often do we say a baby, or dress, or anything else, is adorable ? Often. It prompted me to look up the definition of the word in the dictionary. The 2nd definition of the word says:

2. worthy of being adored.

Is a baby or a dress worthy of my adoration ? No. Only Jesus Christ is worthy.

ad·o·ra·tion –noun
1. the act of paying honor, as to a divine being; worship.
2. reverent homage.
3. fervent and devoted love.

a·dore
–verb
1. to regard with the utmost esteem, love, and respect; honor.
2. to pay divine honor to; worship.
3. to like or admire very much.

May the heart of the believer find Jesus Christ purely adorable.

    Ok, so would it be blasphemous for me to say that the initial sight of this blog’s title made me have to block out a certain scene of a certain, recent Will Ferrell movie?

    Nonetheless, this was some good eating. I never knew that was the definition of adorable. I’ll never say that about another, non-divine baby again.

    Ok this is a “bit much”.

    There are several definitions for the word adore (the root word), as this is the case for most English words. Other definitions are:

    to love intensely

    to love or like very much

    I certainly hope everyone with children finds their babies adorable. If not, we’re in trouble!

    Princess,

    I see what you are saying, but I disagree w/you. In the English language, we use many words so loosely w/o considering the definition… such as words like ‘awesome’.

  4. Princess says:

    But I did consider the definition. Since “adore” also means “to love intensely” or “to love or like very much”, is it wrong to “adore” a baby?

    Not generally, but again:

    In the English language, we use many words so loosely w/o considering the definition… such as words like ‘awesome’.

    🙂 Jenn
