Romans 13:8–10 (ESV)
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Part of our Christian identity is love.  We are to love each other with an “agape” love.  That is a love that wants what is best for a person.  It is not a brotherly or erotic love, but a love that wants what’s best for that person.  Paul then list off the 6th Commandment (Adultery), 5th Commandment (Murder), 7th Commandment (Steal), 9th & 10th Commandment (Covet).  It should be noted that Commandments 4th-10th are all geared toward you neighbors.  We are to love God and our neighbors.

I pray: O Lord, I know I love you.  Help me to love my neighbors with an “agape” love.  Forgive me when I fail to love you or my neighbor.  Guide me Lord according to your ways.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
