The Coming Fiery Ordeal

1 Peter 4:12-14: 

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
