I say different, based on my 29 years with the one who initiated me. The first few weeks showed me otherwise, for that matter...
Jesus came only for his marked souls, whom he called his sheep--as do all masters.
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
