Joy From The Well – Love

Psychology tells us that love is one of our basic human needs. It's right there after such needs as breathing, food, water, etc. We all have that need to love and be loved, and without love, our lives are devoid of true happiness. Love gives us the feeling of security and confidence that make life worth living.

The Bible talks a lot about love, and in fact, Jesus gives us the great commandment: “Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV) In this passage, Jesus sums up the Christian message as love God and love others.

At Shallow Well Church we want you to know that God loves you. “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” (1 John 4:10) God loved you so much that He sent Jesus to die on a cross for your sins. And having given himself on the cross Jesus can now bring you into a relationship with God. What a joy to know God on a first name basis.

At Shallow Well Church we want you to know that we love you as well. We promise that as part of our church family we will love and support you to the best of our ability. We will "rejoice with you and we will weep with you" during life's journey. We will not judge you for your past failures, nor beat you over the head when you make mistakes. “No matter where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.”

So come, see for yourself. Experience the love of God and the love of the church here at Shallow Well.
