Love is a raging beast. Like a lion, it seeks that which will satisfy it. Love lies in wait and preys upon the other creatures as they feed. But even they all can’t satisfy Love. Infatuation and Obsession stand afar off, reminiscing about the past and fondly sharing stories of great conquests. Their very presence repel Love. And most nights, Love goes to bed hungry.
Love is a hungry creature. Love growls as the hunger pangs hit it over and over again. How will it survive this evening? It has been so hungry for long now. If only it could find something satisfying. But one so pure can’t feed off impure creatures. They can never bring satisfaction.
Love is like a noble Prince who leaves his homeland in search of a Princess worthy to be called his Queen. He battles unfavorable conditions – the cold nights, the afternoons when the sun smiles brightest and the thieves that always lie in wait for unsuspecting travellers. But the Prince is resolute. He’ll never stop until he finds her.
Love would cross a thousand seas and weather a million storms until it finds true satisfaction. But what would ever satisfy Love? What could possibly put an everlasting smile on Love’s face?
The truth remains that the only thing that can ever satisfy Love is Love. Love was never meant to go unrequited. The best response to Love is Love. Yes, Love will be patient, kind, true, selfless and noble even when it is not returned. But imagine what will happen when Love finally gets Love.
That’s what Easter is all about. Love gave all to get Love. Nothing will ever satisfy that Love except our response of Love. Don’t ever forget: God created us to give Love. But we must first respond to Calvary’s Love. Only then can we love as He wants us to. Easter is all about Love.
