This is another reason to:

  1. Keep your computers/devices up to date with the latest version of operating system that it can support.
  2. Keep your apps up to date by going to the App Store, Google Play Store, Windows Update, Mac App Store, etc. and downloading any updates.
  3. Have a good passcode / password on your device.
  4. Have a short time-out for auto-lock.
  5. Turn on “Find My iPhone” or install Lookout to help locate your device if it is lost or stolen.

Being Grafted – The Upper Room.

in order to produce good fruit our “branch” needs to be nourished and strengthened by being linked to the “root” (God).

A branch which is separated from the plant will die.

Our faith is strengthened and nourished by being with other believers and taking time to dig into His Word, confess or sins and sing His praises.

Certainly, you don’t “need” to go to church.  But I firmly believe that your faith is strengthened and fed when you are among other believers.

As Ecclesiastes 4:12 says:

12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

As the Israelites looked at the bronze snake on the pole and lived we can look at Our Savior, Jesus on the cross of Calvary and live.
