Thought for the Work Day
The church must be careful not to portray that Christians who reach success in their profession automatically become the greatest influence for God and His kingdom out in the world. We must ask ourselves, what measurement is being used, God’s or a human’s? When the church was birthed shortly after the resurrection of Christ, it was not so much the people in high places that promoted its cause and influence within the culture of that day. Its influence came through God giving equal value to people’s jobs on all levels, from the most common job of the day to the most highly regarded ones. God’s people believed He was using them to promote His glory in their workplace, regardless of how the world measured success. It resulted in them penetrating and persuading the culture of that day to consider something entirely different than what it was! What is your faith in God promoting at the workplace? (PMC) Consider: “Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).
(This thought was written by Paul M. Curtas, General Director of FCAP.)

“Our work becomes worship as we present ourselves as a living sacrifice to God in the details of our work everyday.”(PMC)
What is FCAP?
The ministry of FCAP is carried on throughout the airline workplaces of the world by ordinary people who see their work as a partnership with God. FCAP is a fellowship of Christians who identify with one another through a common focus and purpose. We desire to demonstrate how our faith in Jesus Christ will influence how we do our work, how we treat people, and how we respond to the circumstances of our workplace. We are blessed to have both airline and non-airline people who encourage and support the ministry.
