You are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls
"In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls."
The apostle Peter spotlights this contrast: trials will happen, and these have a purpose in confirming that faith is genuine. But even more than this, we have perspective on our trials and can even rejoice because the reward is the salvation of our souls!
