This is a scriptural study on the importance of keeping our eyes –, a metaphor for our renewed mind — on the Lord.

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people because all sinned (Romans 5:12).

For as in Adam all die, so in Christ, all will be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15:22). But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord; in you, I take refuge (Psalm 141:8)  “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. (Matthew 6:22 )  

Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? (Mark 8:18).  Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvellous in our eyes’? (Matthew 21:42)

But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, (Psalm 33:18) Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. (Proverbs 3:7)

Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. ( Psalm 119:37) I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8)
