What Is Love Anyway?

Do you remember that Howard Jones song from the 80s "What Is Love?" I think he was really on to something when he wrote it. Is this kind of love possible? HoJo thinks not. He thinks that we will always doubt this kind of love. While we may doubt it, it IS possible through Christ.

God's love is perfect and therefore, seemingly unbelievable. And yet, that is why it is so amazing! In truth, we really don't need to doubt God's love. And as we accept it, we can tap into His love for others through the Holy Spirit. I didn't say it was easy, but it IS possible.

I love you whether or not you love me
I love you even if you think that I don't
Sometimes I find you doubt my love for you, but I don't mind
Why should I mind, why should I mind

What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway
What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway

Can anybody love anyone so much that they will never fear
Never worry never be sad
The answer is they cannot love this much nobody can
This is why I don't mind you doubting

And maybe love is letting people be just what they want to be
The door always must be left unlocked
To love when circumstance may lead someone away from you
And not to spend the time just doubting
