Faith Under Fire

Faith Under Fire
1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 1:6-9 GNT
6 Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer.
7 Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine. Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire; and so your faith, which is much more precious than gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure. Then you will receive praise and glory and honor on the Day when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 You love him, although you have not seen him, and you believe in him, although you do not now
see him. So you rejoice with a great and glorious joy which words cannot express,
9 because you are receiving the salvation of your souls, which is the purpose of your faith in him.
