The Man Who Predicted Christmas
This advent season at Parkgate, we’re inviting you to rediscover Christmas by revisiting several passages of Scripture we often hear this time of year but finding fresh truths in them by looking at them from a slightly different perspective. Today, we’ll be looking at the man who predicted Christmas, the prophet Isaiah, and one of his most famous prophecies about the coming Messiah. Through Isaiah's words, we'll discover four questions we can ask to help prepare our hearts for Christmas.

    The Church That Surrenders
    If someone were to ask us, "Who is the Lord of Parkgate?" most of us would emphatically respond, "Jesus!" The trouble is, we know the answer should be Jesus in our heads - but we have trouble fully embracing the lordship of Christ in our hearts. Listen as Pastor Chelsea shares what it looks like to be the church by surrendering to the lordship of Jesus.

    God’s Broken Heart
    When we think of Palm Sunday, we often picture a parade of happy children waving palm branches, shouts of hosanna, and Jesus riding on a donkey. While this imagery certainly isn't incorrect, it doesn't give us the full picture of the depth and heartbreak that accompany this story. Ultimately, this passage points us back to the truth that our rebellion breaks God's heart - but there is hope.

    Choosing Hope
    Theologian Dr. Tim Mackie puts it like this: “What we hope for shapes what we live for.” So if we hope for circumstances to get better, then we only live for circumstances getting better. When we’re disappointed, our hope fades. But when we place our hope in God, we live for God. That’s what motivates us to endure the challenges life brings us.

    A Radical Reputation
    When we think of our desired reputation as believers, words like “loving,” “welcoming,” “kindhearted,” and “faithful” come to mind. The word “generous” probably does too - but how are we about actually living that out? As we look at the transformation in the heart of the Israelite people as they brought their gifts to the tabernacle, we learn what it looks like to give radically, by giving gratefully, collectively, sacrificially, and obediently.
