Hope Bringer

Christmas greetings from central Illinois!

I trust and pray that you are ready for Christmas in your neck of the woods. The local weather forecast here is calling for snow early tomorrow morning (eek!)…so I’m just a little bit excited! I’m also excited about the three candlelight worship experiences this weekend at the church I lead. There’s nothing better than sharing the good news and witnessing people respond to it so they can leave with hope.



When Jesus rocked the manger more than 2,000 years ago, HOPE entered the world. Are you ready to share that hope? Are you ready to become a hope bringer?

It’s difficult to give away something that you haven’t received–so perhaps it’s you who needs a heaping of hope during this Christmas season? If just threw your hand up in the air and exclaimed, “Me! Me!”, the good news is that with Jesus, there is always hope. When you run to Him you are running the Hope Bringer.

Allow me to echo the words spoken by the angel in Luke 2:10 (NLT):

“I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.

The Gospel is…

that brings…

and it’s available for…

Jesus rocked the manger so you could–not only be a recipient of hope–but so you can live your life handing it out.

Be a hope bringer.

It’s too late to order and receive my book 41 Will Come before Christmas, but you might be able to find it at your local Barnes & Noble. This is the perfect stocking stuffer for someone who needs some hope…or even a good gift idea to help someone kick off the New Year with!

For those of you who have already read 41 Will Come, will you please consider writing an Amazon review before the end of the year? If we can get the number from 68 reviews to 100 reviews, Amazon will extend its reach by placing it in front of more people…which extends more hope to the masses.

Here’s my most recent Amazon review. 

Amazon Review
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

A book revolving around the clever insight of the 40 Day church craze. You’ve probably seen or heard about the multiple 40 Days of whatever topic: purpose, prayer, fasting, etc…

Chuck Tate takes that idea to the next level and asks, “What happens on day 41?”

I love this idea. There’s always the next day to look forward to. After the 40 days of whatever was going on in the biblical stories, and with your own 40 days, there will always come a day 41 and that is cause for excitement.

This is one of those Don’t-Give-Up books but it is so cleverly done that you can’t help but be excited about what you read.

If you’re any kind of reader of the Bible, you’ll probably find yourself thinking, “Oh yeah! That’s true. I’ve never really thought about that!” while you go through Tate’s book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and encourage anyone to read it and be encouraged.

41 Will Come is available in the following formats:
  • Paperback (soft cover)
  • Kindle (eBook)
  • Audio Book (CD)
  • Audible (download)
