What is the purpose of salvation?

Q: What is the purpose of salvation?

What do you get from salvation in Christ? What do you get out of it? Do you live a good life and go to heaven? I mean, is that it? What about in Revelation, where they talk about the new heaven and the new earth, where humans will have new bodies? Anyone know about this? How can people come back from the dead and live on earth, when on the earth you are temporal beings, that will eventually die? What is the point of coming back from the dead?

A: Salvation is a form of eternal life. The BEST form.

God promises to share everything he is and everything he has with those who love him, subject to virtually NO limitations.

At the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ, the earth as we now know it, will be transformed into something like the glory of heaven, as will our mortal bodies.

The dead will be instantly resurrected. The living will be instantly transformed.

Suitably equipped and provisioned by God, man will be judged, and the “saved” will exist for eternity with God on the newly renovated earth, in glorified bodies (thought to be much like Jesus’ resurrected body) that are compatible with both heavenly and earthly realities.

No more sin. No more death. No more suffering. Eternal life in the Kingdom of God, just as was always intended.
