Henry Kissinger said, “I am convinced that no one will win the war between the sexes, for there is far too much fraternizing with the enemy.” Perhaps God made us male and female so we would fraternize with the enemy, just as Christ fraternizes with us. He is the Groom and we are His Bride. We have Jesus envy. Terrified of His “Headship,” we tried to take His life on the tree. But He gave His life on the tree. He is romancing us, that we would ask Him to fill us with Himself. He is relentless Love and we are not…but we will be.
