Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Our family is planning a trip to New York next year.  The six adults are all planning their own transportation

for the 1200+ mile trip.

Our youngest daughter and her boyfriend will still be in college and will have to accommodate their class schedules.  They will fly.  Our oldest daughter, an attorney, also has a busy schedule to deal with and she plans to fly as well.

My husband and I have always wanted to take a train trip, so we are using this opportunity to ride the train for 25 hours.  I hope it will be as pleasurable as we anticipate.

Our son has not yet decided how he will arrive, but I doubt he will drive.

Regardless of our method of transportation, we each have one thing in common: we have a destination.  In our case, we have the same destination.  Usually when you board a plane, a train or even take an automobile ride, you do so with a destination in mind.  Even if you plan to enjoy the journey, as we do with the train ride, the main point is to get somewhere.

Our lives are a journey as well and at the end, there is a destination.  Where is the destination for your life?  There will be a station waiting for you depending upon the choices you have made.  It will be too late when the train pulls into the station, or when the plane lands on the tarmac to change your mind.

It really is simple because there are only two choices.  You either choose to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, and your ticket is stamped with the destination of "Heaven," or you choose not to and you get the default destination. . .an eternity of a lonely hell apart from every comfort and every glimpse of the Love and Glory of God.

Choose wisely.  Choose today.  You are already on your journey and no one knows when your train is pulling into the station.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. 

But he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." John 3:16-19
