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.

Spiritual Maturity Takes Time

What does it mean to you when you read these words from Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost”? Many of us fail to truly comprehend the key point in this reading. Too often we act like the Pharisees who questioned why Jesus would dine…

An Advent Invitation

Walk into any store and it’s clear retailers are now ready for Christmas. Ready that is to make money off it. Many no longer even call it Christmas. For them, the “holiday season” as it’s called, is simply a time for making profits. What is this time of year for you? Advent begins in just…

Your Smile Might Save A Life

Miracles did not stop occurring after Jesus’ death on the cross. Miracles increased after His death and the number of people through whom these miracles were occurring, increased as well. “Rise and walk” were the words Peter used in Acts 3:6 when he cured the crippled beggar.  Jesus has been working miracles through His followers…

The Tapestry Of Life

We all know the story of the Wizard of Oz. The truth was hidden behind the curtain. The wizard wasn’t a wizard after all. Life itself bears a strange resemblance to the Wizard’s curtain. Much of God’s eternal plan, at least for now, remains hidden. This time it’s not hidden behind a curtain, it is…

Without Wax

Do a google search for the word sincere and you will find a debate regarding the origins of the word. One story, most likely arising from folk lore, states that sincere is derived from two Latin words: sine (without) and cera (wax). I am no expert in etymology, but I can state emphatically, that as…

Is Civility Dead?

Civility is certainly missing in the contentious accusations going back and forth between the two political parties in Washington, DC. Civility is also absent in the aggressive Brexit debates in the UK. This lack of civility is not reserved for politicians. It is on full display all over Facebook, Twitter and other social media. It…

Biblical Photoshopping

Jesus used stories and parables to paint lasting mental images.  Today, images are frequently photoshopped. Things are not always what they seem to be. Photoshopping refers to altering a digital image in a way that distorts reality often for deliberately deceptive purposes. Has the true meaning of one of the most beloved stories in the…

Eight Years of Evangelical Outreach

Eight years ago, on September 22, 2011, I felt a nudge from God to write an inspirational email to 15 of my friends. Little did I know then, that it was the beginning of what would become 4th Day Letters. After eight years, these weekly messages are being read around the world. Today, I want…

Those Were The Days

In 1968 Mary Hopkin sang, THOSE WERE THE DAYS. Included in the song were these lyrics, “Those were the days my friend. We thought they’d never end. We’d sing and dance forever and a day.” People tend to romanticize the past, choosing to only remember the good.  Christians can get caught up in this too.…

Polytheism

Greek Mythology had a god or goddess for just about everything. The Romans also had many gods and although their names were different, their deities had much in common with the Greek gods. The early Jews frequently fell into the practice of worshiping false gods too. The sad reality is that most Christians also worship…
