Here is a great verse to clarify any confusion about the topics of predestination and election:
2 Thessalonians: 2. 13. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
We are chosen through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. Our part is to exercise our free will and believe with all our heart; not mere lip service.
"Good people" don't get to Heaven, only saved ones do. Are you saved from your sins by true faith in Jesus Christ?
