    These here that God chose I feel was clearly because of their love for Him, so again it really is the hearts reaching out to God that are chosen. Many scriptures point this out also.

    And Saul answered, “I am deeply distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God has departed from me and does not answer me anymore, neither by prophets nor by dreams. - 1 Samuel 28:15

    Saul rejected God, so God rejected Him.

    John 12:32 "And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, WILL draw ALL men to Myself." Obviously, not ALL are saved, so this shoots 'irresistible grace' in the foot. We can choose to reject His drawing, but we will be drawn.

    Many are called but few are chosen. Broad is the way that leads to destruction and many travel on it, but straight is the way and narrow is he gate that leads to life and few find it. Also read hemustincrease and Prophetic Insight's answer.

    Will and choice are two different things. It's wiser to use the word 'choice', for we cannot NOT choose to follow one or the other. No man can serve two Masters and there are only two. We must choose.

    hemustincrease, I thought of this passage, too. We have a tendency to want to defend God's honour, but He is the Almighty and He is good. His decisions are just and right and we cannot always explain them within our human limitations.
