Children’s Sermon on Revelation 5 – Worshiping the Lamb

Children’s Sermon on Revelation 5 – Worshiping the Lamb

Use this children’s sermon on Revelation 5 to show children what they can offer to Jesus now. 


Scripture: Revelation 5

Needed: a bowl (optional: a musical instrument)

Children’s Sermon: Ask, What kinds of things do people give to God?

We normally think of people in the Old Testament sacrificing animals or part of their crops to God. Sometimes, we give our money as an offering to God. We can also give Him our time by doing what He wants us to do with our time. We can give Him our skills by using our skills and talents for Him.

In our passage today, the angels and the people gathered around God’s throne in Heaven give Jesus two more things.

(Read Revelation 5:8, quoted here in the NIV.)

And when the Lamb [Jesus] had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.

This verse says each person had two things. What were they?

The first thing they each have is a harp, a musical instrument. They’re playing music and singing to Jesus. They’re giving Jesus their praise. (Show your instrument if you brought one or talk about how people can play instruments and sing now to give Jesus praise.)

The second thing they each have is a bowl. (Hold up your bowl.) And in the bowl are the prayers of all the Christians in the world. They’re offering to Jesus people’s prayers. Can we pray to Jesus today? Yes! So, we offer our prayers to Him.

This week, let’s try to think every day about what we can offer to Jesus. And every day, let’s offer Him our singing and our prayers. We can sing and pray quietly to Him.
