2016-BrokenDoorMinistries-4thDayLetters-Logo

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.

Unrelenting Thorns

I am convinced that every one of us has some flaw or annoying characteristic that persists, frustrates, annoys, and ultimately aggravates the heck out of us. When these flaws are recurring sins in our life, they can also make us feel weak and ashamed. Our interior battle to overcome these “thorns” can leave us exhausted.…

The Kingdom of God: Is It Now Or Later?

Today’s title begs the question: Is the kingdom of God now, or will the kingdom come at a later time? The simple answer is yes/both. Each time we pray the Lord’s Prayer we say the words: “Thy Kingdom Come.” But wait a minute, in the New Testament it also says: “The Kingdom of God is…

“Fixin To Get Ready”

Here in the United States, “Fixin to get ready” is a colloquial expression often used in the deep south. It essentially means: “getting ready to get ready.” In other words, it reflects inaction. Have you ever found yourself fixin to get ready to do something but never doing it? As a Christian, are you only…

Hold On To Love

Today’s news headlines are filled with sadness, confusion, terror, fear, violence, hatred, prejudice and war. In addition, we have political division and animus at an all-time high. In these turbulent and contemptuous times, God will not let us down. God is love and when we respond to the headlines and to others with love, we…

Stairway To Heaven

Would you rather take the elevator or climb the steps to the top of the Empire State building? Taking the stairs rather than the elevator is good advice to get fit. Some people actually run up the 1,576 steps of the Empire State Building. The elevator is much easier. Easy is rarely the right choice…

Discipleship Requires Commitment

Jesus has called us each by name to work in His Kingdom. How are we responding to His call? Have we said yes Lord, or have we offered Him some excuse? How energetically are you committed to bringing others to Christ? Is your relationship with God more than just going to church on Sunday morning?…

We Have A Friend In Jesus

I have always enjoyed John Denver’s music. His songs always have a way of touching my heart. In one of his songs he sings about the relationship he had with his first guitar. In “This Old Guitar” we find these lyrics: “This old guitar taught me to sing a love song.”  I find an interesting…

Spiritual Isolationism

My wife and I vacationed with some very close friends in the North Georgia Mountains this past weekend. We were all sitting around the fire ring on Friday night. Laughter abounded. Friendship filled the air. In the midst of the fun, I excused myself and retired to bed. My MS sometimes causes me to pull…
