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