Read this sermon ...
1) Read Matthew 27:39-44. People who surrounded Jesus on the cross mocked him. Who were they? What thought might they have when they saw Jesus on the cross?
2) It is said that contempt appears in three faces in daily interactions: all gossip, most boasting, and all blame-shifting. What may drive us to say or think like that? What would be its consequences?
3) God mocks (Psalm 37:12-13). Whom and why does He mock? (Psalm 2:3-5)
4) Jesus bore contempt. What does it mean for you today? How would you respond to him now?
