    Jesus has appointed time to heal us and bless us. It doesnt matter if two times he heal the two eyes of a man there is a purpose. He want the man to go out to the town and spread the good news that he was healed by Jesus. Jesus wants us to receive his words for his words has life. When we chose to follow Jesus we must also obey his words we must do what he says just what he says to the blind man

    Compassion for people in need is a lesson here in Mark 8.
    V. 36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?"

    Here, the Lord shows us that selfishness is not the way of His Kingdom. To re rely and depend on Him is the only way to everlasting peace and life.

    What understood on the mark 8 is that when you want go for the gospel of christ, you go for it without looking back, because that you think you that if you go after christ it will spoil, but the word God is saying that you should forsake every other things and follow him because that thing you thing you loose because of following christ, you will gain it back hundred fold, therefore seek 4 Christ
