In the same way, God’s goal in saving us is not to get us out of hell and into heaven- that’s just a bonus. The real goal is for us to experience all that He has promised us in Christ. This is not a minor emphasis in Scripture , but the heart of it. Paul speaking to the Roman Christians said,” For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son’(Rom.8:29).
To the Ephesians Paul revealed the goal of salvation in these words:” He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him”( Eph.1:4).
Not a word about hell or heaven.
