All Aboard!

There's an understanding among passengers. Their bus, train or plane has its own schedule.  They do not determine when it will come and when it will go.  Their place is simply to position themselves to be ready for it when it comes.

My husband understands this very well.  He spends most of his traveling hours dependent on public transportation.  He doesn't call the bus company every morning and let them know he'd like to sleep in.  No.  He awakes and he gets ready.  When he travels by train or plane for business, he must be even more aware of the time and goes out of his way to be sure he's on board.  It would be foolish and arrogant of him to think that things will happen in his timing. 

God's Train has Its timing, too.  And, if we are listening, we can hear the Train Conductor calling,
"All aboard!"
 
Noah understood the importance of boarding.  He knew the flood was coming.  God told Him so. 
 
"Noah was 600 years old when the flood covered the earth.  He went on board the boat to escape the flood -- he and his wife and his sons and their wives."  (Genesis  7:6-7 NLT)
 
 
Are you on board?



The gospel train is a comin'
I hear it yes at hand
I hear the car was movin'
And a rumblin' through the land
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
I hear the bell and twinkle
A coming around the curve
She's playing all her steaming power
And straining every nerve
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
The fare is cheap and all can go
The rich and poor are there
No second class on board this train
No difference in the fare
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
She's there and now the station
Or better don't be late
But come and get your ticket
And be ready for this train
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
Little children
There's room for many a more
 
 
"Get On Board"
