I realized that a man or woman who loves will face many battles, and the man or woman who loves will never love without having to war. In other words, the man or woman who loves will have to go to war to love. This is the reality of love because there is an enemy who hates love. Who is against unity and from the beginning of time wanted to steal, kill, and destroy that which God has for you. If there is darkness in this world then there is light and a God that exists.
Going to war for love is what constitutes the very essence of true love. All relationships will face many battles and both men and women will face wars that will come to destroy love, however, those who are willing to go to war for love will gain the meaning of true love.
There is also more to the meaning of love as you get to the other side, which will elevate you to the ultimate revelation that I desire for everyone to know.
I summed it up in these words:
"It’s not the outcome that fulfills one's desire for love but the part of loving well and a journey that only writes a love story of its own."
Jesus' love was expressed in this way when he went to war for us.
He gave himself up and humbled himself without losing his dignity and although it seemed that his love was in vain alone on that cross --That cross marked history as the most passionate agave love ever expressed. And this is the same way He wants us to love one another but before receive his love to reciprocate as a vessel that same love for others. Love not from our own but a love that we know and can give because he first loved us.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
1 John 4:19
"We love because God first loved us."
1 John 4:21
"This commandment we have from him: Those who claim to love God ought to love their brother and sister also."
"No one has greater love than to give up one's life for one's friends."
