Jesus and God are a package deal. He tells us in the gospel that you can't separate the two. By knowing Christ, we know God. The corollary to that is you can't know God without knowing Jesus. He sends out his message, but acting on it is up to you.
One more thing: The early church was led by the Spirit. They spread Christ's light throughout the world. What are you and your family doing to be a light in the darkness to others? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for being the light of my world. Help me to reflect that light to others, especially my children. In your name I pray, Amen.
