Genuine faith will inevitably produce good deeds. This is the central theme of James’ letter, around which he supplies practical advice on living the Christian life. With energetic style and crisp, a well-chosen word, James confronts the conflict head-on. It’s not enough to talk the Christian faith, he says, we must live it! “What good is it my brothers and sisters if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such a faith save them?” (James 2:14) The proof of the reality of our faith is a changed life.
