Faith is one of the most misunderstood topics related to Christianity. And how faith goes together with works has been a hotly debated topic for centuries. What can’t be denied is that James views faith and works as being intricately and eternally linked to each other. James wants to see a claimed faith that is clearly seen in what one does. He presents a faith that perseveres through trials and temptations. Though our enemy would tempt us and we have been ruled by our passions in the past, James encourages us to persevere through all of that for a life that endures and that is approved by God and is rewarded with life.
