We were loved. We were elected. We were chosen in him before the foundation of the world....chosen for salvation, chosen to obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We were predestined to be adopted as sons. We were not appointed for wrath, but to obtain salvation. We were called by God... called into the fellowship of His Son.. .called to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus.
Our old man has been crucified with him. We have been crucified to the world, and the world to us. We were baptized into his death, buried with him; we have become dead to the law. We died with Christ. The body of our sin was done away with, we have died to sin, we have been freed from sin! Old things have passed away, all things have become new!
We were given grace in Jesus. We were ransom to by Him, brought to God, redeemed by his blood, redeemed from the curse of the law. We have been purged from our sins, washed, cleansed from all sins, forgiven all trespasses! We were delivered him from the power of darkness, and have been translated into the kingdom of God’s Son, adopted as His sons.
We were raised with Christ, made alive together with him. We have been reconciled to God. We have been justified freely, begotten again. We have been saved.
We were circumcised with the circumcision made without hands. We have had the love of God poured into our hearts. We have been sanctified, anointed, given the Holy Spirit as a deposit, sealed in the Holy Spirit. WE have been renewed and regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We have been brought near to God, raised up into heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We have been released from the fear of death through him.
We were created in Christ Jesus for good works, were enriched in everything in Him, and have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. By his stripes we were healed.
................
We have been PERFECTED FOREVER by him !

We are the beloved of the lord, his delight .
We are now dead to sin and alive to God in our Lord Jesus Christ. We are not condemned. We are free from the law of sin and death. We are no longer slaves, but sons! We live through him, and our life is hidden with Christ in God.
We are God's own special people, his children, accepted in the beloved. We are Abraham’s seed, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. We are partakers of his promise.
We are new creations in Christ. We are justified, reconciled, redeemed, renewed, sanctified and established in Christ. We are Holy. We are the righteousness of God! We are the glory of Christ, the fullness of him who fills all.
We are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens and members of God's household. We are the elect of God, a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, Kings and Priests of our God and Father. We are living stones being built up into a spiritual house. We are the temple of the living God. We are habitation of God!
We who are joined to the Lord are one spirit with Him. We are partakers of Christ. Our bodies are members of him. We are one with Jesus. He is the head, we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. We are members of one another.
We are the fragrance of Christ. We are his ambassadors. We speak before God in Christ. We live by the power of God in us. We are the light of the world. We rejoice in God through Christ. Nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus: not death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height more depth nor any other created thing! We are more than conquers in tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril and sword!

We are ALWAYS led in triumph in Christ by God. We are able to do All things through Christ who strengthens us.
We are being transformed into his image.

We are complete in him! ! !

We shall no longer be slaves to sin. Sin shall not have dominion over us. We shall be delivered from this body of death. We shall not sin as we abide in him. We will be given life in our mortal bodies, save by his life, made alive, and have our consciences purged from dead works so that we can serve the living God. We will live through him. We will ALWAYS be with the Lord.
We will be rooted and built up in him, established in him, abounding with thanksgiving. Nothing shall separate us from his love. Through Christ’s poverty we shall become rich. We shall inherit the promise and the blessing of Abraham, become heirs, and receive the promise of the spirit. We shall ask what ever we wish and it will be given to us. We will bear much fruit.
We will be guarded from the evil one by our Lord. We will be delivered from this present evil age. We shall have ALL our needs met according to his riches in glory by Jesus. We shall overcome the world! We will REIGN IN LIFE through Jesus!
Whether we sleep or wake we shall live together with our Lord.
We shall obtain salvation and be delivered from the wrath to come. Jesus will confirm us so that we will be blameless on the day of the Lord. We shall be presented holy, faultless an irreproachable before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. . . We shall be presented PERFECT IN CHRIST!
We shall see him as he is, and be like him, in and the likeness of his resurrection, when he is revealed. We shall appear with him in glory. We shall be married to him, Jesus, who was raised from the dead!!

In Christ we have received affection, mercy, and the comfort of love. We have had the handwriting of the requirements that were against us wiped out, have had our sin put away. We have God’s seed remaining in us so we cannot sin. We have peace with God through Jesus Christ. We have been given the grace of God, and access into that grace, access with confidence, access by the Spirit to the Father.
We have put off the old man and put on the new. We have had the Holy Spirit poured out on us abundantly. We have an inheritance: guaranteed, incorruptible, undefiled, kept in heaven for us, kept by the power of God.
We have received the Spirit of adoption. We have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. We have the promised that our labor is not in vain in the Lord. In Christ we have liberty, redemption, the forgiveness of sins. We have confidence, boldness, victory! We have life, immortality, eternal life, and a living hope. We have the mind of Christ himself!
We have the peace of God to guard our hearts and minds. We have the riches of his grace abounding towards us, and the bounding consolation and comfort during suffering. We have his anointing abiding in us, teaching us concerning all things.
We have the Spirit of God’s Son in our hearts, God working in us both to will and to do his good pleasure, God working in us what is pleasing in His sight. We have the Spirit making intercession for us according to God's will. Christ himself is appearing in the presence of God for us, ever-living to make intercession for us! We have his power working in us. . . power to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think! !
