Recently I spoke at two of our FCAP groups in Europe. In attendance at one of the groups was a lady who has been very involved in FCAP over the years and served on the leadership team. Now she is retired from the airline industry. I had made a comment during my message about God’s view of our being employed… Whether we are actively employed by a company, unemployed, between jobs, or retired, with God we are always employed by HIM. She came up and told me how God has now opened new doors and is involving her in unique opportunities within her area. It started out one day when she said her coffee no longer tasted good to her. She decided to go up to the local corner café close to her apartment building. She met some people there and entered into casual conversations with them. So she decided to go back on a regular basis. Now she is a part of that “café culture” with regular people that eat there. They not only know her but also, through these ongoing conversations, doors are naturally opening up to talk with them about her faith in God. Ministry is not complicated when we are willing to make friends with people and engage in normal conversations with them. This is part of being employed by God. PMC Consider: “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
