Those who are not chosen don’t believe in Jesus and don’t follow Him – and don’t want to. Those who do believe in Jesus know His voice and they follow Him. If you were not chosen you would not delight in God’s Word, and you would not be concerned about your salvation. Those who call upon Jesus for salvation – all of them – He receives, and does not turn away, and gives them salvation. And that salvation is eternal and secure: “No one can snatch them from my Father’s hand” (John 10:29; see also 1 Peter 1:3-5).
Just as it is true that no one can come to faith in Jesus unless he or she is chosen by God, it is likewise true that we are not saved unless we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Both are true. Thus, God chooses the elect, proclaims the good news to all, and saves those who believe (who are also those He has chosen) are saved
