I believe another word that would go good there is anointed as well. Those selected to be in heaven with God.
Those chosen by God to receive that Gift because of their righteous conduct.
God has given us the free will to choose to live for him or to live for this world...Satans world. Oh and how Satan has made the lights bright and all the wonderful things to go after to make one comfortable and content...without God. Many choose this world over God, most of them...remember broad is the road leading to destruction and narrow is the gate leading to life. God is giving us the choice to choose which road we want and unfortunatly many are choosing the wrong one. Look at the Israelites, how many times did God show his powerful miracles to them but the chose to disobey anyway. How many times did the Pharisee's witness Jesus' miracles and listen to his wonderful message and yet went away seeking a way to do away with him? Have things changed? Has Satan changed? No. Unfortunatly most dont want God, they'd rather have pleasure and fun, trying to take advantage of the sacrifice of the Christ.
