This is why the Christian gospel is described by the word 'grace' - because the right to live in God's presence is his gift, not something we have earned, deserved or merited. This is dealt with extensively in the Romans studies. There is much more that could be said about each of these. The answer to this that the Bible gives seems at first to be rather selfish on God's part: This answer has a number of aspects:.
This is only possible a if we know him, and b if we qualify. So, because he loves us and wants us with him, he sent Jesus to do all of the above so that we can know him [by knowing Jesus Christ] and are qualified [by Christ living and dying our substitute]. I suppose we could say - we are saved so that God can enjoy loving us and we can enjoy his love.
In our state of rebellion and alienation and ignorance it is simply impossible for us to image him. When he saves us through Jesus all of this is reversed and we from that point onwards have the potential to increasingly image him as we live in positive face to face relationship with him. Assuming that imaging God is the purpose for which we were created it is only when we are imaging God that we are truly and fully human. It is only here that we maximize the meaning of 'human'. God actually has our well-being and fulfilment in his mind when he saves us to glorify him.
I will say one thing more: When we see Jesus as he really is, when we realize that in seeing him we are seeing God, when we honour him as God - then we are saved, even if we were not seeking salvation. It's really radical, powerful and enlightening. It is our common behaviour to reject God and substitute our own god-concept in his place. Studies on this site.

Why do I need to be saved?
