Bound for Glory: Song and Devotional

21 Mar

Bound For Glory

            Some consider this to be a folk song, while others claim that it is a gospel or spiritual song. I say that it is both. The concept of a train bringing us to glory isn’t a biblical one and would line up more with the side of folk music. However, the truth of God’s word teaches that those who are saved are indeed bound for glory.

            A train won’t bring us to glory, but Jesus clearly taught in John 14 that He would come and take us to the Father’s house one day. We also won’t follow train tracks to get there. Instead, Jesus told us, that He is the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Him. (John 14:6). Our only means to heaven is Jesus.

            Most trains also require a ticket to get on board. Some tickets are pretty pricy as well. But, praise be to God, our ticket to glory has already been bought and paid for with the blood of Jesus Christ. If you haven’t put your faith and trust in Jesus for eternal life in glory, you better not wait. To use the metaphor, don’t miss the train, for it (He) is the only one.
