To fix our gaze on Christ

In Mark 8:22-26, Jesus heals a blind man. Mark uses several different words for sight or seeing, and the implied progression is from simple biological ability, to an ability to perceive dimly, to the ability to focus and fix his gaze.

When Jesus restores our spiritual sight, he also give the ability for us to keep our gaze focused on him.

Many things can distract us from looking only to Christ, among them the idea that we have become good enough to stop repenting, we’ve become straight enough to quit reforming, or that we’ve become mature enough to cease learning.

Would you fix your eyes on Christ? Be constantly repenting, constantly reforming, constantly learning.
