Love's Power

Many waters cannot quench love. . .

Song of Songs 8:7

The Song of Songs offers an impressive display of love’s invincible power. “Love is as strong as death,” Solomon insisted (8:6). None of us escapes death; it arrives with a steely finality we cannot break. And yet love, the writer said, is every bit as strong. What is more, love “burns like a blazing fire, like a mighty flame” (v 6). Have you ever watched a fire exploding in feverish rage? Love—like fire—is impossible to contain. “Many waters cannot quench love.” Not even a raging river can sweep love away (v 7).

Human love, whenever it is selfless and true, offers reflections of these characteristics. However, only God’s love offers such potency, such limitless depths, such tenacious power. And here is the beauty: God loves each of us with this unquenchable love. So much so, that from the depths of His love, He gave the greatest gift the world has ever known; Jesus Christ, His own dear Son.
