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.
