Good Friday – I Wanna Know What Love Is

Posted on Friday, April 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ask most any child, teen, adult or senior citizen, “What is love?” and their answers will vary. They might not vary so much in the quaity of their experience, but the quantity of their experiences.

Sure, love involves feelings — romanticized by music, literature, and other media, but it’s also so much more.

We all yearn to create and — when we feel like we’re losing it — recreate the “love” what we feel we have lost.

Why do marriage fall apart?
Why do dating relationships between people who “love” one another fail?

They feel like the “love” is lost.

“What Is Love?”

Most of us crave a level of shared understanding — intimacy — based on what seems to be our ideal “love.”

Often times whether we’re a child, teen, adult or senior citizen our deepest longings — our joys and sorrows and our estimation of what this world can offer — shape how we define “love.”

There was a song by the Foreigner and later Mariah Carey that really grasps the challenge of pursuing love.

While “I Want To Know What Love Is” is intended to be a romantic song, the longings it expresses are genuine far beyond romance.

On this Good Friday I’m reminded of the God who believed that talk is cheap unless it’s backed up by actions.

“I Want To Know What Love Is” 1

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
I through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I’m feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is…

Wanna know what love is?  Look who’s hanging on the cross.
