Luke 23: 34 May God Forgive Us

As I was contemplating on this verse I was reminded of what Jesus did on the cross in order to save us from eternal condemnation.
The people who yelled that he should be nailed on the cross were the same people whom Jesus Christ died for. Yet amidst all the mockery and pain that Jesus have experienced more than two thousand years ago while he was being crucified, He still asked God the Father  these Words:
"Father forgive them for they don't know what they do"

In the present world, there are still many of us who were like the Jews. We might have never crucified Jesus Christ again literally but we failed to acknowledge all the things that HE has done for us. We are blinded with all the things that this world could offer from good career, treasures, degree and sophisticated lifestyle. With little faith, we considered all those things that God has done for us as just a glimpse of History that were being recollected over and over again every Good Friday.  

This should not be the case...

If we continue to be lukewarm with our personal relationship with God, can we still be assured that Jesus Christ will speak the same Words to God the Father when He said:  
"Father forgive them for they don't know what they do"

Or we might just be leading ourselves to ETERNAL CONDEMNATION.

May God forgive us. Amen
