I read this poem a few months ago and wanted to read it again to see if it
is something good to share with you. After reading it again I felt the
Lords presence around me so I guess that is proof that it's worth it for
you to read. I believe this is a great poem that can both save souls and
bless the believer.
I hope you enjoy the poem.
Oh, to hear the stories that Christians tell
Of Satan, fire, death and hell
Of demons that torture night and day
Of pain and suffering along the way.
They say these things are meant to be
For only those who just won't see
The other choice, the ONE above
The God of Peace and Hope and Love.
Now what if I choose Satan's way
To live my life from day to day
Just let myself have loads of fun
Now how much harm could I have done?
First I could just go hang around
In the darker parts of town
Or lie or steal or cuss and drink
It doesn't matter what people think.
And what's a little cheating now and then?
Everyone does it; it's not such a sin.
I only want what I deserve
So to have my way, who do I serve?
You say this Christ, He died for me?
He paid the price to set me free?
He willingly laid down His life
To save me from all sin and strife?
He took my cross and carried it
To keep me from the fiery pit
He took away all sin and shame
And laid it on His Precious Name.
Now why would Jesus care for me
So much he'd hang there on that tree?
He's given all that He can give
To offer Life and let me live.
I guess my choice is finally clear
I'll serve my God while I am here
I'll love Him every day I live
I'll give Him all I've got to give.
I know He knows what's best for me
For He can see things I can't see
I'll trust Him each and every day
For every step along the way.
The choice is clear -- God's way is best
For, Satan, you have failed the test.
You're doomed already, by the Book
God's already said it. Take a look!
And Satan, you can't have my heart
For Jesus lives there; he won't part
And just to let you know who's boss
Just look at that ol' rugged cross.
For that ol' cross, you'll find it bare
For Jesus is no longer there
Death can't keep him in the grave
Freedom over death, He gave.
I'll have eternity to Praise His Name
I'll know I'll never be the same
Since Christ has set me free from sin
And sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within.
So let me share my song with you
And tell you what my God can do
He'll give you Peace and Joy inside
And from your fears, you'll never hide.
For all victory is yours, in Jesus' Name
And you will never be the same
Let Jesus in and take His hand
You'll be on your way to the Promise Land....

This poem is applicable to each and every one of us because Jesus died and
took the sins of all mankind on Himself and in return we can all come to
Him for the forgiveness of our sins and turn to Him for everlasting life.
As it says in Romans 10:11-13, "Whosoever believeth on him shall not be
ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for
the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever
shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life, I encourage you to
make that decision. You truly have nothing to lose and everything to
gain. Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are
heavy laden, and I will give you rest. "Take My yoke upon you and learn
from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for
your souls. "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
Read and meditate on these very well known scriptures:
John 3:16-17, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting
life. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved."
Everlasting in Christ,
