I think the passage is a strong passage for those that believe in eternal security. But I am not convinced it is a strong passage for election. Seems to me the chain goes like this...

From that it flows, that all who believe, are predestined to be conformed. In other words, I don't see this passage relating to election or predestination for salvation, but rather, a predestination for all who believe to be conformed to His image.
