Luke 24:50–53 (ESV)

The Ascension

50 And he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. 51 While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple blessing God.

 

Jesus leads His disciples to Bethany, where He blesses them and is taken up into heaven. They worship Him and return to Jerusalem where they regularly worship God in the temple. We might take for granted all that Jesus has done, neglecting to worship and thank Him for our blessings. We are led to repentance and renewed faith each day, and Jesus continues to bless us with salvation and puts joy into our lives as we serve Him.

 

I pray: “Almighty God, our Father, Your blessed Son called Luke the physician to be an evangelist and physician of the soul. Grant that the healing medicine of the Gospel and the Sacraments may put to flight the diseases of our souls that with willing hearts we may ever love and serve You; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord.” Amen. (LSB Altar Book, p 980)

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.
