Lesson for December 24, 2016.

JESUS UNEXPECTEDLY APPEARS TO HIS DISCIPLES

Jesus is with us every day. We should not limit Him to Sabbaths, prayer meetings or our quiet times alone with Him.  Although it is very true that we are greatly blessed by His presence during those times, it is also equally true that, more often than not, He is right there beside us at the work bench, in the office, while we wash the dishes, drive the car or whatever daily activity we may be engaged in. Those are the times when we may least expect Him, and this should not be so.  Our work should be pleasing unto the Lord, so that our labours may be blessed by Him.
