Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 5
Verse of the Day: Revelation 5:12 – “saying with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb that hath been slain to receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honor, and glory, and blessing.”
The Lamb that was slain. One of the many names and titles ascribed to Jesus throughout the Scriptures. In this passage today, the title is attached to the idea that as the Lamb that was slain, Jesus is shown to have great worth. And this worth ascribed to Him is explained by seven descriptive words. In the Bible, the number seven is considered to portray completeness or wholeness. In this verse, the worth of the Lamb is complete.
Worthy to receive our complete accolades. He receives power, riches, wisdom, might, honor, glory, and blessing.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, we pause today to look at our Lamb that was slain. The One who was the complete and perfect sacrifice for our sins. We cannot say enough to deliver worship and praise to Your Son. He is worthy of all our praise and worship. Amen.
