Most of you have probably never heard this song by my favorite singer of all time. The song is titled “People Get Ready”. In this song is woven the greatest, and possibly most misunderstood message of all time.
People get ready, there’s a train a’ coming
You don’t need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear those diesels humming
You don’t need no ticket, you just thank the Lord
If you are down and out right now maybe this can lift your spirit. Like the song says, you don’t need no ticket, you just thank the Lord. For the first thirty years of my life I thought salvation was by works (and thus was miserable) and it was not until my 30’s that it was revealed to me that salvation was by Grace (an unmerited favor by God). That’s why you “don’t need no ticket” there is no paying your way, the price has already been paid. Anyway, I always find this song moving and such a beautiful metaphor for Salvation.
