Faith is at the heart of the book of James, and the living out of this faith permeates all that the writer teaches. Beginning with the trials and temptations that all believers face, James connects believing and doing. This is illustrated best by two examples he gives. In the first, hearing God's Word is compared to looking into a mirror. If the hearer of the Word does not do what he hears, there is no blessing. The second example related dealt with seeing the needs of others, and saying, "be warmed and filled," while doing nothing to actually relieve their distress. Again, that kind of faith is empty.
