Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and morning were the sixth day.
- Genesis 1:31 (NKJV)
God created everything and it was good. Man had clear fellowship with God. The world contained no corruption. The world was at peace. This state of perfection was God’s plan and the world’s state showed God’s character. God’s desire was for a world in which no sin, corruption, nor death to exist. God did not corrupt the creation but it was man who corrupted. When man corrupted the creation, he opened the door for God’s judgment.
God is just and therefore must punish sin. If God excused man’s rebellion, He would not be just.
God is completely sovereign and perfect. If He chose to leave all people in their sin and allow them to die in their sin, He is completely within His right to do so. Man offended God by sinning. God owes nothing to sinful man.
Although God is just, He is also merciful. Being merciful, God desires all men to be saved. Writing about God, Paul tells Timothy this truth.
…who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
- I Timothy 2:4 (NASB)
If we take the whole of Scripture, we see that God is in no way indebted to save people from their sins, but that He made provision for people to be saved. Thus, God is both just and merciful. He offers salvation to anyone who hears the gospel and turns to Jesus Christ for salvation. In other words, no person trusting in Jesus for salvation is going to spend eternity in hell. Likewise, no person who does not trust Christ for salvation is going to spend eternity in heaven. I think John’s gospel explains things very clearly.
37 All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, may have eternal life; and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.
- John 6:37-40 (NASB)
The point in regards to our present study is that Christians are predestined by God to be changed into the image of God’s Son. Believers are destined to receive the completed work of salvation soul, mind and body. Jesus through His death and resurrection paves the way (first fruit) for us to follow Him into glory. The complete salvation of Christians is a sure thing. This completion is a part of God’s purpose to which God’s children are called (v 28).
You can think of God’s purpose in this progression. He pre-knows His people. He predestines His people to receive complete salvation (full restoration from corruption). He calls His people to Christ. He saves (justifies) His people and finally glorifies His people. You can equate glorification with the completion of salvation. This completion is when we arrive fully free from sin, death, and corruption. This arrival occurs when our physical bodies are resurrected and we are in eternity with Jesus. This arrival is when finally works all things for our good…for good!
 This is the end of our brokenness.
