That We Would Conform
God has predestinated a certain goal, a certain ultimate glorification for those who believe. “Predestinated” is not all that special a word, anyway. All it means is foreordained, preplanned. The verse is telling us that God’s plan for the believer is not a new thing or an accident. Before man was ever made God foresaw that sin would come. He also foresaw that some would put their faith in Him for redemption from that sin. In eternity, He made His plan and settled His purpose for those who would believe. He determined even then to bring the believers to a final glorification in which they would be conformed to the image of His Son.
