Luke 21:34–38 (ESV)

Watch Yourselves

34 “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” 

37 And every day he was teaching in the temple, but at night he went out and lodged on the mount called Olivet. 38 And early in the morning all the people came to him in the temple to hear him.

 

Jesus warns His disciples to be ready for His return. Our focus on daily affairs can shorten our prayers and lower our eyes so that His return might surprise us. But Jesus’ final word in the temple is good news to those who remain alert: His return will bring redemption and new freedom.

 

I pray: Hear our prayers, O Lord, and give us grace always to anticipate Your glorious return. Amen.

 

Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 1762.

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.
