The Train is Coming

black train

      So yesterday my dad was going to take me to check out the new yogurt shop, Tutti Fruitti. [awesome]  As we backed out of the carport, I could see a tall Jack Russell-like dog running down the street. My dad said, oh he runs up and down the street all the time. So okay, I figure the dog is alright.  Then my dad stops at the end of the driveway to get the mail.  The dog is now in the middle of the road, distracted by looking at my dad and unaware of the full speed van headed towards him. OH MY GOODNESS! was all I could think as I dreaded the thought closing in. The dog moved just in time and my fears were relieved.
      I think that sets up a good analogy about unbelievers.  Unbelievers don't even notice the death train coming straight at them because they are so distracted by the world.  Many think they can put off the decision and be saved just in the nick of time.  That is not a gamble worth taking.  You're betting all of eternity and more with that wager.
      It's better to get on the train that's headed toward you and go on to a better place, than to just be hit by the train and be no more.  The train will come for each of us, are you ready to get on board today?
