Faith is the Assurance of Things Hoped For:

Do you have faith in these promises of Christ...
a faith that leads to obedience?

"...through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles, for His name's sake..." Romans 1:5 (NAS)

Many of Jesus' promises are conditional upon some action and/or belief on our part.  We have the free will to choose to act...or to reject the promises. 

Not Trusting in our Own Works:

When we obey, we are not to have faith in our own works...as we can never work hard enough to earn our own salvation.  Instead, our faith is in the working of God and Jesus in giving what they have promised:

"And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises." Hebrews 6:11-12 (NAS)
