Rise Above Cultivating Character


At North Highlands Bible Church, we desire to be Christ followers rooted in godly character. Because Jesus rose from the dead, we too can rise above the brokenness of this world to be men and women of character. We will focus on a new character quality each month to help us cultivate character.

Courage

Not the absence of fear but the overcoming of fear through mental, moral, and spiritual strength. Josh. 1:9 (NASB) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Determination

Jan. 2018

A strong resolve to accomplish the tasksand projects assigned to me. 1 Cor. 15:58 (NASB) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Generosity

Dec. 2017

Being willing to give and share unselfishlyin a way that benefits the receiver. 1 Tim. 6:18 (NET) Tell them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, to be generous givers, sharing with others.

Thankfulness

Nov. 2017

The condition of being grateful and appreciative of others. Col. 3:15 (NASB) Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.

Servanthood

Oct. 2017

A caring attitude that moves you to act on behalf of others. Gal. 5:13 (NET) For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do
not use your freedom as an opportunity to indulge your flesh, but through love
serve one another.

Humility

Sept. 2017

The ability to see others and recognize their value. Phil. 2:3-4 (NASB) Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with
humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4) do
not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of
others.
