Where could the idea of "Saved by grace alone" come from? Can we work and earn our way to Heaven? Are there any works we have to do to be saved?

Intro – Truly saved. That is the theme of this passage. It asks and answers 3 great questions – Who is Jesus? (18-20); What Did He Do? (21-22); and What Must I Do? There is no salvation if we deny the deity of Christ. That’s the cost to God the Father – He gave His Son. There is no salvation if Jesus…
With the entire process of salvation by grace through faith being the gift of God, that means we are a new creation of God (HIs workmanship) in Christ. No more boasting, no more blaming - we're all in the same boat and brought together by a common experience of death and life. We are saved BY grace, FOR good works. These good works are especially prepared for us as we are God's unique work of art displaying a part of Himself. So everything we do can be seen as a God's special mission for us.

However, it becomes clear that James’ point is NOT that salvation…
