Luke 23: 39 ” One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at Him: ‘Aren’t You the Christ? Save Yourself and us!’ “

It could have been me speaking with such irreverence towards Jesus.  The Greek word for “hurled insults” in this verse is Blasphemeo, where we get the word blaspheme from.  The robber who reviled Jesus, mocked Him by saying, “If You call Yourself the Messiah, then show us by rescuing Yourself from Your own impending death!”  So any time I operate in disbelief and mistrust of the Lord…I’m basically hurling insults His direction also.  Yes, it could have been me.
