The Goal of the Gospel

Found this quote at Justin Taylor's website. I don't think I have ever heard a better one sentence description of the goal of the Gospel.
“God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule living God’s way enjoying shalom in God’s holy and loving presence to God’s glory” (God the Peacemaker, p. 229).
Sounds better (and more comprehensive) than just going to heaven when you die.
