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.

One Small Step For Man

I am writing this message on Saturday morning, July 20, 2019. Fifty years ago today, it was July 20, 1969. I was just 12 years old. Like everyone else, I was glued to the television screen and listening to Walter Cronkite on CBS news. The events of that first lunar landing are etched in my…

Life’s Perfect Storms

On Sept. 20, 1991, a boat known as the Andrea Gail left port in Gloucester, Mass. for the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Meanwhile, storms were brewing off the coast. Two weather fronts and a hurricane were colliding. It became known as The Perfect Storm. Life on the sea can serve as a worthy metaphor for…

In Love Or Just Friends?

Has anyone ever asked you if you have a “personal relationship” with Jesus? I believe that Jesus is calling Christians to something much deeper than a “personal” relationship with Him. He is calling us to an intimate relationship with Him.  I believe the Bible is clear on this fact. Are we in love with Jesus…

Shame, Silence And Slavery

Today marks the 400th edition of 4th Day Letters. In the Bible, the number 400 is closely associated with the subject of bondage.  In Genesis 15:13, Abram is told his people will be enslaved and oppressed for 400 years. Sadly, we are all still enslaved to sin today. God desires to set us free. Today’s…

The Folly Of Self-Reliance

Not one of us chose to be born. None of us knows the date and manner of our death.  We did not choose our hair color, eye color or skin color. We did not choose our nationality. In order to live, we are completely dependent on air and water, and clearly we did not create…

Are Christians Harming Christianity?

Ask any Christian why they left their previous church and their answer often revolves around being hurt by someone at their past church. Ask a former Christian why they have given up on Christianity altogether and likewise, their answer might have something to do with some less than Christian way they were treated by another…

Can You Hear Me Now?

I think by now we all know the Verizon commercial, “Can you hear me now.” Verizon began using that commercial in 2002. In 2016, the pitch man for the commercial jumped ship and became the pitchman for Sprint. The two companies sparred over the catchy phrase and the pitchman himself. As we celebrate Pentecost and…

Walking In The Dust

Have you ever prayerfully wondered what you must do to truly inherit eternal life? That was the question that the rich man posed to Jesus in Mark 10:17. “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” What must we do? We must walk in the dust of our Rabbi Jesus Christ. Are you…

Heavenly Homing Device

We were created destined to return home to the Father. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.” Mankind was created in the image and likeness of God. God desires for us all to…

Hurdles Are A Running Event

A lot has changed since I was a young high school athlete running hurdles on a cinder track and measuring the distance in yards rather than meters, as they do today. But one important fundamental remains the same. Good track coaches teach the beginning hurdler that hurdles are a running event, not a jumping event.…
