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.

Wallowing In Mud

Do you remember playing in the mud and mud puddles when you were a child? It was great fun. You just couldn’t seem to get muddy enough. Little kids are almost instinctively drawn to the mud. If you have children, when they were small and wanted to play outside, how many times did you say…

Shadow Boxing: A Journey of Self-Discovery

Thomas Merton once wrote: “Every one of us is shadowed by an illusory person: a false self.” Based on our actions and aspirations, all of us have a self which can’t truly exist. Our false and private self wants to follow our own rules and it wants to live outside of God’s will for us.…

Father or Task Master, Which Is It?

Through my work in this ministry, I have encountered many Christians who seem to live in the fear of God’s wrath. They far too often see God as a harsh task master, ready to punish them for their every mistake. With each subsequent sin, they fear their salvation is in jeopardy. This seems to me…

“My Bad”

Are you familiar with the modern day saying “My bad?” Perhaps you have even said these words. “My Bad,” is a half-hearted flippant apology that rings hollow and lacks true sincerity. It has been defined as: “A way of admitting a mistake, and apologizing for that mistake, without actually apologizing.” Why is it so hard…

How Can Satan Win?

Satan is known as the great deceiver. Today’s topic is “How Can Satan Win.” The problem with this topic is that many people today no longer even believe that Satan is real. Before going any further, allow me to point out Satan’s biggest lie. Satan’s greatest lie is to convince us that he doesn’t exist.…

Do We Know How To Love Jesus?

Do any of us truly know how to love Jesus? He scares me so. I want Him so. I love Him so. These are the last three lines of lyrics from the hit song I Don’t Know How to Love Him, from the 1970 rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar. Today I want to look deeper…

Too Much Baggage

Aviators have known since the dawn of flight that if there is too much weight the air craft will crash. Spiritually speaking, G. K. Chesterton captured this gravitational reality when he made this statement in his book Orthodoxy: “Angels can fly because they can take themselves lightly.” What about humans? What happens if we are…

Easter At The IMAX Theater

Imagine for a moment that you have suddenly died. In an instant you appear in the largest IMAX Theater you have ever seen. You are seated in the best seat in the center of the theater. The screen is multiple football fields wide and several hundred feet high. At first you are seated alone.  As…

One Will Betray Me

In John 13:21-33, we read that while Jesus was reclining at the table during His last supper, He was deeply troubled. Why was He troubled? Jesus was aware of the events about to unfold. He anticipated the coming agony. Growing up in a Roman territory, Jesus had most likely witnessed the barbaric way in which…

Get Out Of My Life

Easter is just two weeks away. Luke’s Gospel mentions Herod in his passion narrative. Herod’s Song, from the musical Jesus Christ Superstar, memorializes Jesus’ encounter with Herod. “Get out of my life” are the last words sung in this song. Herod mocks and taunts Jesus by singing: “Prove to me that you’re no fool; walk…
