Luke 23:37 “And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself”.
It often happens that some people mock and mock the disciples of Jesus Christ. This is not just the beginning of Jesus Christ himself, they mocked and mocked him when He gave Himself for the sake of all mankind, being able to rise from the dead on the third day. They said: He cannot save himself if He is the Christ, the Chosen One? Luke 23:35 “And the people stood beholding. The rulers also scoffed at him, saying,” He saved others; let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen one “.
He was able to save himself but chose to lay down his life for you and me, and his love for us continued on until his soul was gone. Their mockery was also inscribed by the king of the Jews at the time of his crucifixion. Luke 23:38 “And there was also a superscription over him, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” These mockers do not understand the true identity of Jesus Christ and the purpose of His choosing and willing to give Himself.
Those people and those who now mock the disciples of Jesus Christ do not know that the ridicule and shame of Christians is always a success and a joy, as Christ is now the King of Kings and Savior of the whole universe. Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”.
Brothers, if we are insulted or ridiculed for the faith of Jesus Christ, let us not consider it evil, for God will turn it into good and glory for us. 1 Peter 4:14 “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because you are on the Spirit of glory and the Spirit of God”.
