A New Birth To A Living Hope

5 Through God's power you are protected by [your] faith, so that you can expect to be saved in the end. 6 Because of this you can be very joyous, even though it is necessary for you to have suffered many trials for a little while. 7 But these will only test your faith, which is more valuable than gold which, though refined by fire, eventually perishes. Your faith, [however], will [endure and eventually] prove to be praiseworthy and honorable when Jesus returns.
