Justified...Romans 5:1,9 "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;....Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."
Titus 3:7 "That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."
Risen with Christ...Romans 6:3-6 "Know ye not, that so many of us that were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."

Saved...Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Not of the world...John 17:16 "They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world." (That was Jesus speaking.)
Elect...I Peter 1:2 "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you and peace, be mulitiplied."
Born again...I Peter 1:23 "Being born again, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible, by the word of God which liveth and abideth for ever."

Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ."
