The Offer

He offered me wealth
possessions and fame
my commitment to him
would make all know my name

But He offered me life
Deliverance from death
He showed me that He
Was the source of each breath

he offered me status
and pleasure and ease
If I committed to him
I could do as I please

He offered me sacrifice
He assured me of pain
He made clear that my life
Offered no earthly gain

So, I had the two offers
Which one should I choose?
With one I could win
The other I lose

The logical choice
The one that made sense
Was quite clear to me
Not difficult, not intense

Choose life eternal
Choose what will not fade
Live beyond now and tomorrow
For eternity you’re made

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
