Sermon on the Cross
Do you ever wonder why everyone, even a Christian, continues to struggle with failing to do the good they want to do? Do you worry about what God thinks of you when you sin? Do you struggle with defining what is morally right and wrong? What if God intended to change the paradigm of the whole world with Christ’s death on the cross by transforming the way we deal with sin and providing the way to restore our relationship with God, others, and ourselves? This book explores these questions and explains who Jesus is and how He turned the world love-side-up by forever changing the lives of those who embrace the way of the cross.
Ernest Randolph has been in ministry since 1986, working with youth and adults, pointing them to Jesus. After graduating with his master’s in Youth Ministry from Denver Seminary in 1994, he worked as a youth pastor, as well as a lay pastor in churches around the Denver area. For the last fi ve years, he has followed a call to lead a Bible study in the local bar, teaching the Word of God to a whole new demographic. This opportunity has forced him to dig deep into the biblical message of salvation and discover how God has provided the perfect means to save everyone: rich, poor, strong, weak, young, old, sinner, or saint. The way of the cross kept screaming out to him as the only way possible to provide for the reconciling all people from all walks of life to God. He wrote this book to remind you of that same message of the cross, which is the life-changing power of God to everyone who believes.
Resurrecting the Cross is a culmination of a lifetime of ministry and study on the the subjects of salvation and sanctification as fleshed out on my Christian journey. As I wrote it, I found myself challenged and taught by the gospel and the transformational event of the cross
