Matthew 13:44–46 (ESV)

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

 

These two parables are best kept together.  There are many interpretations, some right and some not so right.  The best… or more Christological interpretation would be to see that you are the treasure and the man/merchant is Jesus Christ.  He paid the price with his life.  He gave his all for you and me.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to realize how much Jesus loves me and what he gave up for me.  He died so that I may live.  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.
