Jesus gives us a chance at new life when he died for us on the cross. We have to make the first step and accept jesus, when we do we get that new life.

John 3:3 3 In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.[a]

Don't you think you have it turned around, Jesus accepts us! John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Rom. 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

Rev.17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Notice the last clause... and they that are with him "ARE CALLED" "CHOSEN" "And FAITHFUL" God does the calling and drawing, leading you to repentance. No friend we have not chosen him by accepting him, he accepted us.

Agreed. Salvation is not a "chance". God is knowing very well what He is doing, for His sheep.

Yes we have been preordained before the foundation of the world to be blameless before God through Christ.

Love.

Yes born again is the first resurrection. Ephesians 2:6 (KJV)
