The book of James is considered to be the How-To guide on Christian living in the New Testament. James wrote this book to Jewish Christians at the beginning of the Church to give them practical tips for how they could better live out their faith--with actions. It's true that we can't buy our salvation with deeds, but it is also true that "the proof of the reality of our faith is a changed life and that genuine faith will INEVITABLY produce good deeds" (NIV Zondervan Life Application Bible).
This means that when we truly begin to live out our faith the way Jesus instructed us to while he was here on earth, people will notice a difference in us because of our actions. We are transformed from the inside out.
