1 john 4:9
"By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him."
1. God made His loving character apparent to His faithful believers in the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ. Does this divine exposure challenge you to make yourself openly vulnerable to others by loving them with selfless love? Why or why not?
2. The birth of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, demonstrated God’s desire for an eternal, living relationship with His people by faith. Does this desire challenge you to relinquish your friendship with the temporal world and experience the authentic impacts of eternal life her and now? Why or why not?
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.

2 Corinthians 9:7:
7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
