Bible: 1 Pet 1:6-9
1:6 This brings you great joy, 1 although you may have to suffer 2 for a short time in various trials. 1:7 Such trials show the proven character of your faith, 3 which is much more valuable than gold – gold that is tested by fire, even though it is passing away 4 – and will bring praise 5 and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 6 1:8 You 7 have not seen him, but you love him. You 8 do not see him now but you believe in him, and so you rejoice 9 with an indescribable and glorious 10 joy, 1:9 because you are attaining the goal of your faith – the salvation of your souls.
