I was traveling on a train that had many stops it would be making…
but I knew my destination and which stop that I’d be taking.
I thought I’d ask the traveler next to me where he was going to go;
then, surprisingly, he said it wasn’t something he could know.
I thought that that was rather odd, for one needs to be quite sure,
for travelers can’t ride indefinitely on a never-ending tour.
I’d researched my destination, having heard it was a beautiful place;
but my fellow traveler’s plans were vague and uncertain in his case.
Eventually, he’d need to get off—there would come an end to the trail.
It reminded me of those who travel equally vaguely, but on a spiritual rail.
They think that any exit will get them to a final place of peace,
but they haven’t secured the ticket to where God’s love will never cease.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life…don’t travel until it’s too dark.
Secure your ticket by taking Him as Savior—then you’ll KNOW where you will disembark.
