2:25 After Abraham, the father of the Jews, the apostle cites Rahab, a woman, and a sinner of the gentiles; to show, that in every nation and sex true faith produces works, and is perfected by them; that is, by the grace of God working in the believer, while he is showing his faith by his works.
Jas 2:25 Likewise also, was not Rahab the harlot justified by works? See PNT "Heb 11:31". This is one of the long roll of examples of faith shown by works given by Paul.

I think Paul is saying that even as sinners we can still be a believer in Christ Jesus He said even when we do good evil is always present with us Which is to say our faith alone is not going to save us so we must put the work in also To say we have Faith in God and yet we dont patiently wait on him is not putting out trust to work He said ask and it shall be given knock and the door will be opened
