"People get ready there's a train a coming....don't need baggage you just get on board....all you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin....don't need no ticket, you just thank the lord."
It just so happens I love this song. How fitting it is exploring the book of Exodus! God's people are now on the move. They don't have much to take with them...ok, Joseph's bones as requested but not much else. But now it is time to move! AND move they will!
God's promise of presence in the cloud by day and in the fire by night is a reassurance that not only is God with them, but that God is leading this charge!
