The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9 

Scripture is very clear that “the will of God is that no one (person) should perish! Mankind has been created by God and in the image of the Creator. God has chosen to create man before He created the world. God is sovereign and He knew some would reject Him and some would love Him. This is a perfect bride He is creating. Therefore, He did not create a bride in a robot fashion to love and redeem. 

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26 

This scripture describes John 3:3 to a tee. Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 

True love “agape “ is a choice. And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15 

By not choosing Jesus, you choose to be the reprobate. ““He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:18
