THIRST. We’ve all felt it, but Jesus addressed a specific kind of thirst when he spoke with a woman at a well, as recorded in John 4. This Samaritan woman was like so many of us today…de-churched or un-churched or spiritually curious. Many of us have found ourselves feeling like “something’s missing” but we can’t put a finger on it. Jesus spoke to this woman about her life’s journey and about her thirst. He said, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” Jesus spoke to this spiritually curious woman about God, and He didn’t judge her, dismiss her, or preach at her. She mattered to Him. They talked and He cared and He listened. He spoke without using religious jargon speaking in a language that made sense to her…and it changed her life.
Jesus went on to refer to Himself as this “Living Water” that would cause the woman to “never thirst again.” This is where we get the name H2O from – and this is how we want to engage with others…like Jesus did with empathy, humility and good news.
Because of Jesus’ call to love, we’re committed to living authentically with each other. That means not hiding our struggles and feelings, but being real, being honest and not pretending. It means we laugh together, cry together, hang out together and love one another as Jesus called us to. It’s in these type of quality relationships where we live out the gospel and serve, inspire and pray for one another.
When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, He replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.” But then, to the surprise of the religious people, he added, “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37-39). In other words, love is what Jesus is all about. Not just love as a feeling, but love that flows from God and extends out to “your neighbor”- to every person in your world, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or whether they believe what you do. As a result, our mission at H2O is to love God passionately, to love all people, and to practically meet needs in others lives through service. We exist to live out our faith as a community of fully devoted Christ followers, serving our neighbors & bringing the gospel to the spiritually curious in Orlando.
We are committed to loving our neighborhood, The Milk District, in which we reside through serving and loving in practical ways. We desire for our “Living Room” to become a gathering place for the neighborhood to connect meaningfully and share a table together…eating meals and coffee together, enjoying music and art together, building lasting relationships that are marked by love and concern and service to one another…the kind of “good life” that Jesus talked about.
God has transformed the hearts of people here at H2O and changed us in incredible ways…here’s a few of our stories…
Our church has a “come as you are” atmosphere. You will see some dressed up, some dressed casual. So be yourself.
