We all have favorite movies that we can rec­om­mend to our friends to watch. Some are keen to dra­mas, some on sci-fi movies and oth­ers. Few years back then, I watched a heavy dra­ma that I’ve already mem­o­rized some of the lines of it or “hugot lines” that until now, it is still being used by most peo­ple who watched it. The movie title was “One More Chance”.

Who would have thought that some­times, movies can be a wake up call for us. It some­how awak­ens our aware­ness, our deep­est long­ing for rela­tion­ships and inner most desires of our hearts.

This year, anoth­er sequel of the film “A Sec­ond Chance”, that tells us the con­tin­u­a­tion of Popoy’s and Basha’s love sto­ry. I’m not going to tell the whole sto­ry but I would like to share one of the lines I like most in the film.

I love you even when it hurts”

It is nat­ur­al for us to love some­one who is lov­able but to love the unlov­able could be a dif­fer­ent sto­ry. Have you expe­ri­enced lov­ing some­one who does­n’t love you back?. We thought it could be love but when tough times come, we real­ized it is not that just easy to love some­one because to love some­one is to be more vul­ner­a­ble to the per­son, thus there will be a chances for us get hurt.

It’s easy to love when it’s com­fort­able, when it’s favor­able and when we know that the oth­er per­son has the same inter­est as you or for the women, when the man show­ered you with flow­ery phras­es that makes your heart beat a lit­tle too fast. It’s easy to love when we are hap­py. It’s easy to start lov­ing some­one but to con­tin­ue to love them even when it hurts is anoth­er part of the sto­ry.

How it is dif­fi­cult to con­tin­ue lov­ing some­one even when it hurts. We can do every­thing for the per­son we love, we can give them every­thing we have but time will come, our hearts will give up. And it’s human­ly impos­si­ble to love even when it hurts when we don’t know whom to look at, and so we look for Jesus as the best exam­ple.

Jesus has an agape love for us. That he laid down his life for us, that even he knows it would hurt him most, he made the sac­ri­fice, he died on the cross, his blood was shed on it — giv­ing his life for us so that we can obtain the free­dom of sal­va­tion that is wait­ing for us.

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”  John 15:13

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sin­ners, Christ died for us.” — Romans 5:8

Do you know how much God loves us?

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that who­ev­er believes in him should not per­ish but have eter­nal life.” — John 3:16

With Jesus’ exam­ple of love for us, we will be able to love the unlov­able and love even when it hurts.
