Your works would not have the right motives if it were not for faith first

Faith is belief without evidence. Why is this something to strive for? I would much rather try to find the missing evidence. Faith has never made much sense to me.

I have faith that God by his grace will save me. You cannot 'prove' this empirically/scientifically etc.

I agree with you. Still, that is not a compelling argument for me to have faith.

I generally dislike third option responses, but...
God works with us as we are. One person may be inspired to faith through doing good works, another person may have a natural inclination to strong faith and express that in works.

It also depends on how you define "works."

Regardless, the faithful are expected to act on their faith, and so the two are inseparable in our salvation.
Faith without works is dead.
