A Sermon on 1 Peter 1:6-7

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (ESV)

The godly shall experience trouble; the importance of chastisement; the time of testing and trial as preparation; trial of faith that purifies; faith likened to gold; the trust element in faith is strengthened; trials and testing will; for the Christian; be only that which he can bear.
