1 Peter 1:12
It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.

That God, the creator and upholder of the universe, should give new life and freedom to ordinary, rebellious, mixed up people like us is so wonderful that even the Angels find it mind-blowing!! Bear in mind that Peter is writing to a suffering, scattered people who need reminding of the treasure that is theirs in Christ Jesus. Just like us!

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner condemned, unclean.
How marvellous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvellous! How wonderful!
Is my Saviour’s love for me!

Charles Gabriel
