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.

Today, many take that freedom for granted. Many abuse that freedom. Many allow their personal freedom to cause harm to others. Freedom misused is dangerous.…

Spiritual Dryness Revisited

In 2013, I wrote a 4th Day Letter about spiritual dryness. It is something that at one time or another most Christians experience. After reflecting upon the isolation caused by the pandemic, the inability to attend church, and after recent discussions with several Christians currently going through a time of spiritual dryness, I felt called…

Pleasing The Lord

If I asked you this question, “Does sin offend God,” most of you would say yes. In fact, sin is defined as “an offense against God.” Sin is also an offense against reason, truth, and right conscience; it is a failure to genuinely love God and neighbor. Now, allow me to pose a more perplexing…

What does it mean to be “radical?” Most people perceive radicalism as something bad or evil. Today a radical person is frequently called a terrorist.

Fear of Whom and What

If I were to ask, “What scares you most,” what would your answer be? Fortunately, most of us do not wake up each day fearing the possibility of bodily harm or of being killed, although some of you might. Most people contend with some type of fear.
