“Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”  I heard the pastor say during my teen years.  I was away from God at this time.  As I heard this statement, I thought I was the exception.  I felt unworthy to have my sins forgiven.  I felt so dirty because of the shame I experienced due to the sexual abuse I endured as a child.  However, at the age of 25, I returned to God.  He accepted me with open arms.  I learned that Jesus did indeed take away my sins as the Lamb of God.


“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29, NIV).



“Christ as the Lamb of God, the symbolism having reference to His character and His vicarious Sacrifice, as the basis both of redemption and of divine vengeance” (Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words).


Jesus is sinless as He was given life in Mary by the Holy Spirit.  Being sinless, He could die for our sins.  Jesus was the perfect sacrifice.  He took away our sins as we repent and accept Him as Lord and Savior.

“He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth” (Isaiah 53:7, NIV).

Read Isaiah 53:7. What two things describe Jesus?

What did He not do?

How was He led?

How are sheep described?

Again, what did He not do?

In this Old Testament prophecy, it describes the purpose of Jesus coming to earth as a Lamb of God.  When He was on the cross, He was silent in response to the jeers and torment.

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:18-19, NIV).

Read 1 Peter 1:18-19.  How were we not redeemed?

How is our way of life described?

Who did we get an empty way of life?

How were we redeemed?

How is Jesus as the Lamb of God described?

Jesus is indeed a lamb without blemish or defect.  Before we accept Christ, we do have an empty way of life.  When we accept Jesus, we are made alive in Christ.

“In a loud voice they were saying: ‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!’” (Revelation 5:12, NIV).

Read Revelation 5:12. What were the angels saying concerning Christ?

What seven things is Christ worthy of?

Worthy is the Lamb of God.  He indeed deserves all of our worship and praise.  We can praise Him in thanksgiving for all that He has done for us.  He died for our sins.  This is worthy of all of our praise.


“And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb’” (Revelation 7:10, NIV).  God and the Lamb gave us our salvation through Jesus dying on the cross for our sins.  As the Lamb of God, He is worthy of our praise.

Describe your salvation.

How did you feel?

How do you see Jesus as the Lamb of God?

Take time to praise Jesus for dying for our sins.

Worthy is the Lamb of God.  Jesus obeyed the Father completely and lived a sinless life.  In response, we can glorify His name above every name.


Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus to die for our sins.  He indeed is the Lamb of God without blemish.  Help me to live a life of purity and grace.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.


The precious Lamb of God gave up his precious fleece for us.  Christopher Nesse

The name of Jesus is in my mind as a joyful song, in my ear a heavenly music, and in my mouth sweet honey.  Richard Rolle

Not only do we not know God except through Jesus Christ; We do not even know ourselves except through Jesus Christ.  Blaise Pascal

Remember, sinner, it is not your hold of Christ that saves you – it is Christ.  C.H. Spurgeon

Christ is our temple, in whom by faith all believers meet.  Matthew Henry
