1 Peter 1:5-7 NLT

5 And God, in his mighty power, will protect you until you receive this salvation, because you are trusting him. It will be revealed on the last day for all to see.
6 So be truly glad! a There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while.

    • a 1:6 - Or <I>So you are truly glad.</I>
      7 These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -- and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
