1 Peter 1:5-9 (NCV)
5 God’s power protects you through your faith until salvation is shown to you at the end of time.
6 This makes you very happy, even though now for a short time different kinds of troubles may make you sad.
7 These troubles come to prove that your faith is pure. This purity of faith is worth more than gold, which can be proved to be pure by fire but will ruin. But the purity of your faith will bring you praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is shown to you.
8 You have not seen Christ, but still you love him. You cannot see him now, but you believe in him. So you are filled with a joy that cannot be explained, a joy full of glory.
9 And you are receiving the goal of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
