According to James, Christians should count it all joy, when they go through difficulties because it tests their faith and when faith is tested it produces steadfastness which makes a person perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
He taught that if anybody lacks wisdom, that person must ask God who gives it out generously without holding back. James wrote that whoever asks from God must ask in faith, not doubting because a person who doubts is like the wave of the sea, that is, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Teaching about faith and works, James said it does not profit a man if he said he has faith but lacks works because his faith can never save him. For instance, if a person is feeling cold because he is not wearing warm clothing, you do not tell the person to be warmed without providing him with warm clothing. So also when a person is hungry, you do not tell the person to be filled without giving him food. If such a person is not given what he really needs, work done is zero. The moral is that faith not backed by works is dead.
To James, when Abraham tried to offer his son Isaac on the altar, he was justified by works. He taught that Abraham’s faith was complemented by his work (offering Isaac to God). James also spoke of Rahab the harlot, how she received the messengers of Israel and sent them out on another route to save their lives. This also showed that her faith was justified by works. Therefore, to James, a man is justified by faith and works, not by faith alone.
James concluded that as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

That same day a Benjamite ran from the battle line and went to Shiloh with his clothes torn and dust on his head. When he arrived, there was Eli sitting on his chair by the side of the road, watching, because his heart feared for the ark of God. When the man entered the town and told what had happened, the whole town sent up a cry. Eli heard the outcry and asked, “What is the meaning of this uproar?”
The man hurried over to Eli, who was ninety-eight years old and whose eyes had failed so that he could not see. He told Eli, “I have just come from the battle line; I fled from it this very day.” Eli asked, “What happened, my son?” The man who brought the news replied, “Israel fled before the Philistines, and the army has suffered heavy losses. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God has been captured.” When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate. His neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man, and he was heavy. He had led Israel forty years. His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by her labor pains. As she was dying, the women attending her said, “Don’t despair; you have given birth to a son.” But she did not respond or pay any attention.

It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
