Light at the End of the Tunnel

Isaiah 63:7-14

It doesn’t matter whether you are a miner, a spelunker, or a commuter: we are looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. That is what keeps us going when we know we are only halfway to where we hope to be. Without that small pinprick of light, we wouldn’t even know if we are on the right path. We might be effectively blind.

But the blindness Jesus refers to is not those without physical vision, but those unwilling to see and walk a path that may be difficult. They fail to see the hope and light in the midst of darkness.

Hope is found not in the narrowness or difficulty of the path to the cross, but in the One who leads us. Our Shepherd, Jesus Christ, who has already walked this path. This dim path is illumined by our Friend and Brother. He brings light to the darkest shadows. He clears the trail before us.

This is where God is at work, where his righteousness becomes our righteousness. As we take up His cross, we do not lose heart.
