We are saved by grace, not by works. Works are to sequentially follow salvation.

In the book of James, believers are reminded that good works ought to accompany genuine faith. We can rest in absolute assurance, that our salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone and not by works. But, too, genuine faith in Christ will absolutely not let us rest from serving others for their betterment and Jesus’ glory.

Wisdom: A gift from God for those who ask in faith

God desires for all His children to increase in wisdom. That being so, God won’t withhold wisdom from anyone who asks in faith. Why would He? God wants us to draw nearer to Him and wisdom brings us closer into His presence, because wisdom is grounded in faith and reverence of God. But we must trust Him and believe that He grants good things to those who ask.
