We live in a digitalized world with an increasing reliance on technology that has become a part of our daily lives. Many of us have become addicted without even knowing it and are prone to temptations on widespread on the social networks that we frequent.
The more we consume such mediums, the more vulnerable we become as we allow them permission to form a large part of our lives.
St. Maximilian Kolbe is the patron saint who guards against the dangers of addiction. He wants us to be free of external control and lead meaningful lives that glorify the name of the Lord. Event though the environment around us may be fraught with dangers and risks to our security, we can secure our life by placing our faith in a higher power that oversees all.
It is important that we remain secured to the network of the Lord who not only provides for us, but also protects us from malicious attacks and addictions that restrict our growth. The network that we keep has an astoundingly powerful impact on the course of our lives which is why we must always exercise moderation.
With the grace of God and the help of our patron saints shall we emerge victorious in everything we do and get the most of our our stay here on earth.
God’s Ever-Growing Network
Why is having a strong network important? Christ has repeatedly told us the virtue of creating strong connections with others.
The Church of God is not simply the walls or structures that keep it’s physical form standing, nor is it centered on an individual person or authoritative figure. Many non-believers do not understand this, but the most important factor that makes up our Church is our community that is alive and keeps us strong. St. Maximillian Kolbe reminds us that our faith was never meant to be celebrated in solitude, but Christ has called us to share our joy and love with the world.
In 1 Peter 2:5 the bible reminds us that we are the embodiment of the house of God, “you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” Never forget your divine calling and know that you are part of a much larger picture.
Our network of faith grants us security, shields us from evil and draws us together in the promises of the Lord. Together we are no longer vulnerable to attacks by the enemy, but by our mutual love and sacrifice shall we reignite the fire of the Church and bring God’s word to life.
The saint is telling you that no network can match that of the Lord’s. She is encouraging you to seek this network whose security cannot be manipulated by anyone. In this regard, you are affirmed of detaching from living a troubled life.
You employ God’s network in your life by accepting salvation where the Holy Spirit comes and lives inside of you. This is how you become connected to God’s wireless network. By doing so, you have everything you need to access the power of God in your life which certifies a redeemed life and the world becomes a safe place for you.
You will be enabled to efficiently communicate to the Lord through the spirit and talk about the transformation you desire in your life. With God’s power, you will be shielded from dangers that you can perceive and those that are being planned behind your back. He can tell when someone who is miles away is planning harm against you. He will send signs of caution towards you as well as have his angels watch over you at all times.
Your creator is omnipresent making his network paramount. He will be available for someone who calls unto him in another state while he’s at your presence. Over the fear most of you have for God’s power, it is less likely for someone to attempt sabotaging his network. Misery and sorrow is after those who disregard God’s network as being dominant. It is impossible to win over a power that oversaw your creation and is responsible for your life to date.
Security Against Attacks By The Enemy
Like any large, successful community our Church has also been the target of attack by those who harbor malicious intent. This is nothing new that we have not foreseen, and we have been called to stand firm in our faith.
“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock. in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood” – Acts 20:28
St. Maximillian’s warning calls upon us to guard our hearts and to grow our faith as a community. Not holding distrust or jealousy in our hearts, but true mutual support and to lend our strengths to those who need it. In doing so, we compliment each other and create powerful bonds that are unbreakable as long as we carry the love of Christ in our hearts.
Saint Maximilian is telling us that God will prevent any hacks by the enemy when we confess our sins asking to be pardoned. He is faithful and commits to forgive us and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness. Anytime the evil attempts to lure us into his ways, the Lord will fight for us and remind us of the goodness that comes with being in his arms.
God does not let down those who entrust him with their lives. For a fact, he has always prevented us from falling into the enemy’s traps when he gave up his son to die for the sake of our sins so that our relationship with him can be restored.
Many Parts, One System of Faith
What makes our Church so strong is indeed the sum of all our parts. No one should be neglected or left behind for all of our contributions matter in the eyes of the Lord. As followers of Christ we are connected in his community as one body to fulfil our heavenly mission.
St. Maximillian Kolbe wants us to prosper together as God’s people and continue building your faith in the Lord. Through faith, you will overcome any hindrances that arise trying to pull you out from the Lord’s mercies. Use the faith and hope you have in him as he alone accredits your success.
Feed your faith by regularly reading his word, praising his name and making petitions to him. Accepting to be a follower of Christ and obeying God shows that you are ready to have God take the lead in your life. There is nothing that is meant to divert you from his goodness that will accomplish its mission as he will offer you security at all times.
