Can it not be both?
I see it as God's biggest, over-aching plan is to build His kingdom. Meaning add more and more people all the time that believe He's there doing what it is said that He does. Loving and obeying Him. Along the way we have tons of free will. If those free will choices we make do not fit with His, with an open heart, will lead to more love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Easier said than done I know, but life's no cake walk. But we still can choose joy.
