James's letter is one of the books in the New Testament. He starts with "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ." It is addressed to Christians throughout the Roman Empire.
"James" has 5 chapters. The letter mainly includes the following: greetings from James; a life of faith and wisdom; hearing, listening and obeying the message of God; the forbidden favouritism that means not to favour the rich and powerful; faith and works or deeds; two kinds of wisdom; to be careful with the words that come out of our mouths; to submit ourselves to God; boasting about tomorrow; warning against friendship with the world; and patience in suffering, kindness and prayer of faith.
Faith to James means to work for God.
His advice to Christians stresses the importance of action. His faith equates to action in practical ways: that if you are poor, you shouldn't despair; you shouldn't give up when your faith is tested, to not get angry quickly, to not favour the rich just because they are, to do good things for others, to control desires and tongues, to surrender to God and rely on his wisdom, to resist temptation, to not boast on what you are going to do, that if you are rich, you should help the poor, to be parient and kind, and to pray for those who need God's help.
