Robert Traill (Sermons from 1 Peter 1:1-4), Works 4:93-94:

The obedience that is to be paid to a promising God is plainly the obedience of faith, which the apostle speaks of, Rom. 16:26. God hath made known the gospel to all nations, for the obedience of faith. Whensoever God promises, there is a debt laid upon men by his promising, to believe that he is true who speaks; and by virtue of the greatness of the truth of the speaker, there should be a great expectation of the good things that are promised. And herein lies the life of faith that Christians are called to. What think you is the life of faith? It is nothing at all but this, a life of looking for all those good things that God hath spoken. It is a life of expecting the great blessings which God hath promised; this is the obedience that is due to a promising God, the obedience of faith.
