DCLM Sincere Milk 28 November 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Worthy is the Lamb



9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

11And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

KEY VERSE: “Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain…” (Revelation 5:12a).


Our Bible passage is a part of Jesus’ revelation to John, His beloved disciple. At this point, he heard a glorious song from heaven sung by uncountable number of heavenly hosts declaring the worthiness of HE who sits on the throne, the LORD Jesus.

The word worthy is used here to describe someone who possesses great worth, honour and great esteem; someone who is suitable for an assignment, deserving merit, having excellent quality suited for a duty, one who excels in achievement and is distinguished in deeds.

Jesus Christ has done what nobody in heaven and on earth was worthy to do. He is, therefore, worthy to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory and blessing. These virtues He possesses before the world was formed. But here, He needed to receive them for the benefit of all His friends.

All that we need to live a successful Christian life and to be qualified to live eternally in heaven have been received for us through the death and resurrection of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. You must sing His worth, declare His greatness, spread the news of His love to mankind and daily enjoy the benefits of His work on the cross through a holy and righteous life.

PRAYER: You are worthy O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power for saving our souls.


1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
