Biblical Integration Information:
The times and affairs of man are in the hands of the eternal and transcendent God. Human behavior and decisions often reveal our desire to grasp authority, coerce, manipulate, or intimidate others created in God’s image. Rather than being the master of our own fate, humans are created in the image of God and responsible to Him. Therefore, we should seek unity, justice, and reconciliation as we are guided by the principles of God’s Word. Our interactions with one another and with God can be patterned upon the historical person of Jesus Christ and sanctified as we relate to Him and seek His grace in our lives and times. Recognizing that our possessions and talents are to be used for the edification of our neighbor and the glory of God will lead us into true stewardship, citizenship, and social health as we wait patiently for His return and establishment of His eternal Kingdom.
