Mark 8:22-26 // When Jesus touches us, he begins a process of bringing us from spiritual blindness to perfect sight. Sometimes, we can get frustrated that this growth or maturity doesn't happen in a single step; it feels more like a marathon. Jesus said that this is how the kingdom of God works: it is like a mustard seed that grows into a large plant. Apostle Paul writes that God who began a good work in us will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. So, we can trust God and remain faithful to his work in bringing us closer to him each day.
