I Peter 5:6-7
So humble yourselves under God's strong hand, and in his own good time he will lift you up. You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern.
1. Do you recognize the fascinating contrast Peter revealed between personal humility and spiritual exaltation? If so, I encourage you to place yourself under God’s powerful authority so He can raise you up to a position of dignity, honor, and joy according to His perfect timing.
2. Do you recognize the fascinating contrast Peter revealed between personal anxiety and spiritual care? If so, I encourage you to completely direct all your anxious concern toward the One who considers you to be a precious recipient of His affectionate attention.
First, I want to thank you for being part of our online community. Second, I wanted to ask if you would consider supporting the work of CBF through our online giving portal? We know that many of you are struggling financially. We would never ask anyone in such a situation to give to us rather than care for their family. We believe that our calling is to steward God's gifts well. Asking someone to neglect their obligation to family in the name of financial giving would be irresponsible on our part. Having said this we also acknowledge that many of us have been blessed by God even in this time of hardship. We are asking that those who have been given much would consider helping to support the work God is doing through our church. We are a small community of believer and given our size this time of hardship will continue to affect the work that we are able to produce in the coming weeks and possibly months. We can assure you that anything given to CBF will be used to glorify God in the Naples area. Would you please consider partnering with us in the work of the Gospel? If you feel God leading you to partner with us, just click on the "Support CBF Naples" button below. When you get there scroll down and you will find a "donate" button.

7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
