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.

What Else Is There To Say

Have you ever been at a loss for words to describe something? Most of us have. We can see or experience something that is so amazing, so grand, so breath taking, so awe inspiring, so life changing, that mere words cannot capture its essence. Well, I guess as a writer, I am not supposed to…

Mercy Meets Misery

The hosannas quickly gave way to cries of, “crucify Him.” Jesus rode into Jerusalem as a triumphant king, but just five days later He was executed as a criminal. How quickly things changed. Things change quickly in our lives too. One minute we feel close to our Lord in prayer, and moments later, we fall into sin…

Not Written With Etch-A-Sketch

An Etch-A-Sketch serves as a good metaphor for today’s message. Someone can draw on it, and then simply turn it upside down and shake to make everything magically disappear. We often treat God’s laws the same way. We are prone to turn His laws upside down and shake them off in an effort to make…

A Lesson In Humility

Sarcasm drips from the words, “I just can’t wait to look in the mirror because I get better looking every day.” The song, Oh Lord It’s Hard To Be Humble, mockingly exclaims with a witty arrogance, that it is hard to be humble when you are perfect in every way. Despite its sarcasm, the song…

The Mysterious Path to Freedom

A little toddler, having just learned how to walk, tries to exert his new found freedom. With a devilish grin on his face, he looks over his shoulder as he defiantly attempts to run in the opposite direction of his parents when called to come to them. It seems that very early in life, we…

The Last Supper Painted With Words

It was in November of 2011. I knelt down to pray in a dimly lit chapel. This was the third night of an eight-day silent Christian retreat. Little did I know, that what was about to transpire over the next fifteen minutes would not only change my life, but also touch and change the lives…

No Dress Rehearsal

As people filled the pews in the church, the pianist played Here I am Lord. What a fitting song for Walt’s funeral. Just over 4 months ago, I had never met Walt. Now my wife and I were attending his funeral. I know Walt would want you to read this story. His death has an…

Love All Over Again

Most married couples will tell you that there have been seasons in their marriage when their love for each other grew cold. Their marriage wasn’t necessarily in trouble, but the couple had become so busy with the daily routines of life that they were failing to share their close, loving, and intimate signs of affection.…

Creatureliness

I recently stumbled upon a word I was unfamiliar with. The word was “creatureliness.” Although I was unfamiliar with this word, I was not unfamiliar with its underlying concept. Perhaps it would benefit all of us to do a quick refresher. Would it surprise you, if I told you, that all people struggle with their…
