God’s Aim in Election, and Our Personal Holiness
After revealing his free electing grace toward sinners like us, what does God intend to do with his children now? What is the aim of our election?
He answered by expounding Paul’s words in Romans 8:29–30:
29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
In this clip, Gaffin explains why God’s aim in predestination is personal holiness, what that looks like, and why Jesus has a stake in it all:
