Tunnel of Love

You may have asked sometime in your Christian experience for the Lord to make you more like Christ.  If you did, you may not have been all that excited about the process.  It calls for suffering.  You can look at the book of 1 Peter to validate that the word shows up 16 times in that book.  I was thinking through this reality over the last few days.
The dark tunnels we experience as believers is evidence of God's love shaping us to be more closely like His Son.
There have been times in my life that I felt like I was in a long dark tunnel.  The light at the end I hoped was not an oncoming train.  Those times have shaped me as a believer.  They have taught me dependence on Christ.  They have instilled humility.  They have stripped me of self assurance.  They have underscored my need for the Body.

God is love.  We read that certain description in 1 John 4:8, 16.  Those dark tunnels are God’s tunnels of love as he shapes us more perfectly into the image of His Son.
