Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
Society today has tossed the word love around to the point, that for many, it means very little. We love our food, our money, our homes, our cars, and our jobs. Yet ask yourself, do any of those things love us back? The answer would be no, as none of those things have the ability to show any emotion. Sadly, this is the kind of love that many show one another as well. On social media pages we show approval with likes, or hearts on peoples posts. Often, we don’t know these people, or anything about them. It’s an emotionless click, with very little thought or care attached to it. Yet, some people on those social media sites, live for the likes and hearts they gather on those posts. Their happiness depends on how many of these emotionless, thoughtless, likes or hearts they might gain from people they often do not know. For many, love has become a meaningless click.
God however does know you. He knows all about you. When God says, He loves you, it’s a special kind of love. In today’s verse, God told disobedient Israel, He loves them with an everlasting love. In 1 John 4:10 it says; ”Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” God again shows us the same special kind of love. Even in our sinful state, He loves us enough to send His only Son, Jesus, to be the total payment for our sinfulness. This is a special kind of LOVE.
It only makes sense that we love a God who loves us like this. In 1 John 4:19 it says; “We love him, because he first loved us.“ The special relationship we have with God is based on a special love. It’s God’s Special love, implanted in our heart.
Do you know God’s Special LOVE?
Nothing has changed. Israel was called to put their faith in God. They did not, and it cost them. We too are still Saved By Faith in the person of Jesus Christ. This week we saw God working in:
● Satisfied By Thy Word
● Search Me, Try My Reins
● Surrender And Live
● Say What?
● Spiritually Discerned
● Special Kind Of Love
Salvation has never been by works, we are today and always will be Saved By Faith.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs

Not of works, lest any man should boast.
