The Legend

A "legend” can be an ancient tale as well as a modern myth. It can also be described as a fictitious or a false belief. But here in The Legend of the Gospel Train, it’s simply a story based on truth. The idea of the Gospel Train is pretend yet the story it illustrates is the TRUTH, the Gospel Truth. Our “Legend” uses the image of a train as a contemporary parable or faith-based allegory to communicate an otherwise complicated concept that is mysterious and profound.

Ephesians 5:25b-27 & 32 25b ...Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. ... 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. (English Standard Version)

Will we grasp the full understanding of Christ’s love for us?

Ephesians 3:14-21 14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
