I Met Jesus At The Crossroads

Everyone gets to make choices. This song is about the ONE most important choice every person has to make. Please give it a listen, then come back for more thoughts.

I set before you the way of life

When our first child was about 5 years old I had an aquarium. NEWSFLASH! Eventually, fish die. Our daughter learned it. We developed a tradition that when a fish swished its last, our daughter and I would scoop it out of the aquarium and respectfully give it a burial over the edge of the deck in our West Virginia back yard. It was a way to appreciate the joy the little creature had provided and say goodbye.

Death ends life. Kids understand that. It is not that hard for kids to understand death is a problem.

So it makes sense to them when they learn Jesus came to solve the problem of death. They are open to clear instruction that they must accept the gift of life. Don’t neglect to see they are taught that!

Adam and Eve were the only ones given the choice to stay the course OR choose death. Everyone who came after them is given the choice to stay the course OR choose life. Exactly HOW a person would gain life has changed through God’s history. Thanks to Jesus Christ, OUR choice is so simple and beautiful, it is hard to imagine. Thanks be to God!

The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy

The thief, the adversary, Satan, has been around a long, long time. He has a HUGE head start on learning schemes and strategies to keep people from accepting LIFE through Jesus Christ. He will spin lies to lure people into his traps and keep them from getting to Jesus for their entire lives if possible.

God Almighty has been around a lot longer than Satan. God knows how Satan works. God sent Jesus to destroy the works of Satan. We are wise to learn HOW God works through Jesus to destroy Satan’s works and bring us from death to life.

That’s what this song is about.
Jesus came that we might have LIFE.
Satan just steals, kills, and destroys.
Jesus calls everyone to follow him.
Satan calls everyone to follow him.
We get to choose who we follow.

God said it best: “CHOOSE LIFE“.

God bless you LOTS!

Dale R.

LYRICS: I Met Jesus At The Crossroads

I met Jesus at the crossroads,
Where the two ways meet,
Satan too was standing there,
And he said, “Come this way,
Lots and lots of pleasures,
I will give to you today.”
But I said, “No, there’s Jesus here;
See what he offers me,
Down here my sins are forgiven
Up there a home in heaven.”
Praise God! That’s the way for me.

    This morning (13/12/2023), I thought of my Sunday School upbringing and remembered this song … the first sentence’ I met Jesus at the cross roads, where the two ways meet”.. but I forgot the other words. I Googled it and found you here. Thank you very much for putting this up as the words still speak the truth and are relevant even now. I was 10 years Old in Sunday when the missionaries taught us … though I was a Christian at 5 years Old. Now I am 61 years old and still remember and enjoy Christian Life. God is good. Keep on serving and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. It helps. It helped me up to now. The peace ☮️ of God is well with my soul. Amen 🙏.

      Sarah, thanks so much for writing a note about “I Met Jesus At The Crossroads” and sharing your thoughts.

      Like so many others, you and I were taught songs like this as kids, and they mean even more to us now than then — even though I recall liking them a lot as a kid!

      What you wrote explains why I’m so interested in doing this song site and keeping these songs alive for another generation. I want others to have an experience like we did — to carry songs like these with us for a lifetime. I think songs like these have helped a lot of us live longer and more joyful lives than we might have otherwise. Our three kids are grown up and married now, and they grew up learning a lot of these … and they still enjoy singing them.

      God is good!
