When sometimes we are at a very low point of our lives, others often use this euphemism to console us.  They often tell us not to worry because ‘they can see a light at the end of the tunnel’.  I read a poster once with a rather pessimistic outlook.  It claimed ‘the light at the end of the tunnel has been temporarily turned off’.

There are many people in the world today wandering around looking for that proverbial ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ and they are finding none.  They feel like that light has been turned off and there is no escape from the dark, desperate ‘tunnel’ they are in.

This is because they are looking to the world for that light.  Temporary lights may be found here, but a permanent light will not.  To find an everlasting light we need to turn to Jesus.  In John 12:46, Jesus says to us, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness”. (KJV)

One of the reasons Jesus came to this world is to be our light.  If you living in a place of darkness and want escape, turn to Jesus, there is no darkness so deep that He cannot brighten it.
