Three Views of Christ's Work
Mark 8:22-26
And he comes to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man to him, and sought him to touch him.…

I. Christ's work as a SALVATION. The restoring of sight was a point on the brilliant line, the end of which was the salvation of mankind; so was every miracle of healing.

II. Christ's work as a PROCESS. The good work was not accomplished in this case, as in other's, by a word; it was done gradually. It is so in spiritual enlightenment. All good men do not see God with equal quickness or with equal clearness.

III. Christ's work as a CONSUMMATION. "He was restored, and saw every man clearly." He will not leave His work until it be finished, if so be men beseech Him to go on to be gracious.
