God Doesn’t Save us FROM the World but FOR the World

The central message of the Bible is not simply that we are sinners, but through Jesus God is rescuing us from this sinful world so that we can be with Him in heaven.

That’s part of it, but it’s not the whole biblical story.

The Bible is not about the rescue of humans FROM the world but about the rescue of humans FOR the world, and indeed God’s rescue of the world BY MEANS OF those rescued humans.

In the Bible we are saved not simply so we can go to heaven and enjoy fellowship with God but so that we can be a truly human royal priesthood in this world.
