    Faith without good deeds is useless. How can you relate to that statement? (James 2:19-26)

        

    "My faith, my friendship with Jesus, is more important to me than anything else in my life. A friend once told me, "If you want to know your future, tell me about your friends." I think that means we become like those we hang out with. I like to spend time with Jesus, praying to Him, reading about Him in the Bible and other books, learning about Him and what He taught from hearing sermons and talking with other people who love Him, too. As I do that, I hope He rubs off on me. My goal is to think and act like Him more and more the longer I know Him. And Jesus did lots of good deeds."
