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.

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…

The Road To Self-Discovery

There is a vast difference between self-identification and self-discovery. In today’s culture there is a growing belief that everyone has a fundamental right to self-identify who they are. Some people believe they have a right to self-determine their race, gender, ancestral heritage, and strangely enough, even their age, height and weight. We are called to…

Change, Loss and Grief

Life’s one constant is change. People and organizations change. People experience change from birth until death. Change means we have lost something. The more emotionally attached we are to something, the more that loss leads to grief. Changes happen at our churches too. When people experience change at their church, their sentimental, emotional and historical…

The Epiousios Diet

There are too many diets to keep track of. Most become passing fads. Some are supported by medical data. Others are not. Each unique diet puts forth its own unique claim. One promises to reduce cholesterol levels. Another says it lowers blood pressure. Yet another one purports to reduce the chance of Alzheimer’s disease. Only…

The Battle Is The Blessing

A young Christian grew tired and weary of his struggle. Despite his desire to be born again and to be a new creation in Christ, he continually fell back into old sinful patterns. He feverishly begged God to change him. He even sought professional counseling. Sure, he would break free for a while, but soon…

Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth

When two people are mad and arguing with each other, one or both may spew the hateful words “GO TO HELL”.  There really is no greater curse to wish upon someone. Today, these words appear to only be hateful rhetoric. More and more people are rejecting the existence of hell. Modern, moral relativism tries to…

What Is Your Butterfly Effect?

“We were like two ships passing in the night.” This is a metaphoric expression, often used when two people have a short, chance, passing encounter. Often only a few words are exchanged. The two individuals separate, continue on their way, and often never see each other again. As Christians, should we be concerned about the…

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…
