1 Peter 1:12
The Big Idea: The Gospel that Angels long to see is our daily life-line – our reason for rock-solid joy (even in tough times).
Has anything gone wrong in your life? Will anything go wrong from here on in?
Are you kidding me? Why don’t I suffer with that type of joy? V6-9
Answer: we are not obsessed with the right things.
Key word: "Concerning…" This uupacks verses 6-9, especially v9
Key question: What does it mean to look with “obsession” or deeply gaze into the Gospel like the angels do?
1. Really KNOW the gospel
Example of knowing the gospel
Example of REALLY knowing the gospel
2. Read all of OT and NT through this: v11 – the suffering and glory of Christ

Why did the OT have blood and sacrifices?
3. KNOW that the Gospel is good news – for you V12
Will Jesus abandon you? How do you know?
"At the same time, we are more wicked than we dared believe and more loved than we dared hope" 1 – No matter what is going on INSIDE you OR AROUND you.
