Through the Tunnel of Death
"If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:3
I once worked in a tunnel back in the days when I thought I would be an engineer. We were boring through an Alabama mountain where a big water conduit was to be placed. One contractor bored from the east while we dug westward. “Have they broken through yet?” I asked one morning. “Yes,” a worker replied. “They broke through last night on the graveyard shift.” Years later it hit me: Jesus worked the “graveyard shift” at the cross. He broke through the dark tunnel of death, and when it comes our time, He will come back to us and lead us through.
