4th Day Letters is a weekly email that we send out every Tuesday as response to a calling we felt from God to inspire and motivate Christian leaders into apostolic action. The Christian movements of Cursillo, Kairos, Via de Cristo, and Walk to Emmaus are experienced over 3 days. Once an individual has experienced these 3 days, the rest of their life is referred to as their “4th Day." Also, Jesus rose on the 3rd day, so therefore I would like to think of all human history, after His resurrection, as the world’s “4th day.”

I hope these letters challenge you and inspire you in your Christian walk.

What storms are you facing in your life? In what ways are you being tested? Do you sometimes feel as if God is distant from you? The Bible makes it clear that life comes with strife. It is foolish to assume we can journey through life without trials and tribulations. The question is, where should…

Goodbye Egypt

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. It marks the beginning of Lent. Lent gives us the opportunity to prepare ourselves for Easter.

The Devil Knows Your Name

We all know the phrase, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me”. It turns out that this is simply not true. It is especially not true when “words” come in the form of name-calling. There is clear evidence that if someone is called a derogatory name long enough, they…

The Boxer Returns

The boxer was on the mat defeated. Stars swirled in his aching head. Sin had landed him on the mat with a one-two punch. He had momentarily lowered his guard and sin’s punches hit with lightning speed. As he regained consciousness, he reflected on his life. It had been a series of defeats and knock…

Birthright For Beans

The Book of Genesis gives us many intriguing stories. One of those is the story of Jacob and Esau. Esau trades away his rightful inheritance to his father’s large estate to his younger brother Jacob in exchange for one bowl of red bean porridge. This action seems ridiculous. His father was a wealthy man. The…

To Die For

I am sure you have heard the expression, “To die for”. Someone trying a new flavor of ice cream or a new dish at their favorite restaurant might exclaim, “Now that’s to die for”.  This expression has become synonymous with the phrase, “Wow, that’s awesome”.  People use the expression “to die for” for very meaningless things. Christianity, however,…
