Bible: 1 Peter 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.
