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.

The True Joy Of Christmas

Christmas is that time of year when our thoughts turn to our families. Families are one of God’s great gifts to mankind, however, they can sometimes be messy. Much has been written recently about disfunction and the deterioration of the nuclear family. Every family seems to have a black sheep. Does yours? Maybe you or…

Look Where You Are Going

Surely all of us have bumped into something when we weren’t paying attention. We likely heard someone tell us, “Look where you’re going.” That phrase contains both physical as well as spiritual wisdom. Between 2011 and 2018, more than nine percent of fatal crashes in the United States involved a distracted driver. Spiritually speaking, Advent…

Do You Have Beautiful Feet?

A dear friend of mine is a retired podiatrist. I often wondered what it was like for him to spend his entire day working on someone’s feet. Jesus wasn’t a podiatrist, but we all know that He washed the feet of His apostles not long before He died. Did you know that the Bible calls…

Trusting In God’s Mercy And Love

Through this ministry, I frequently engage in conversations with Christians who struggle with some area of constantly recurring sin. Despite many attempts to change, they seem unable to break free from their sinful bondage. Do you have an area of sin like this in your life? Most of us do. Unfortunately, too many Christians become…

Spiritual Muscle Memory

Ted, a devout Christian, recently left home with plenty of time to get to his prayer meeting. He didn’t have far to drive. His short drive came to a grinding halt when he encountered an elderly woman blocking traffic. She seemed to have stopped her car in the middle of the road for no reason.…

Divide Et Impera

Do you know what “divide et impera” means? You should. We have seen it played out these past few months in the United States and it is on full display around the world. Niccolò Machiavelli wrote about it in 1513 resulting in the term Machiavellian becoming synonymous with deceit and deviousness. Julius Caesar employed this…

Politicians Want Our Vote, God Wants Our Life

Today is Election Day in the United States. Perhaps for a while, the bombardment of political ads will cease. Maybe, like me, you have grown tired of every politician telling you how he/she can miraculously solve every problem known to man. The reality is, no politician running for office can solve the world’s ills. God,…

In All Things Give Thanks

There are many challenging teachings in our Christian faith. Learning to love our enemies and learning to forgive someone 77 times are two of those challenges. Another equally difficult Christian principle is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 which states, “In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ…
