4th Sunday in Lent John 9:1-41

John 9:3-5 "Neither he nor his parents sinned; it is so that the works of God might be made visible through him. We have to do the works of the one who sent me while it is day. Night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

Through these readings, Jesus continues to show that suffering is not merely the result of sin, but a tool through which He reveals His glory and power

Through these readings, I learned that my own suffering isn't just an inconvenience, it can be a sign of love if I choose to make it that. Anything offered up to God can be a sign of love. It's been said that a single breath offered up to God has more meaning than years of hard labor for personal gain. They remind me that my suffering is only as pointless as I make it, so I should choose to let God show His glory through my own suffering. I also learned that without faith, we become blind spiritually.

I would focus on the redemption of suffering by Christ. Where suffering used to be simply a result of sin, Christ has now made it an act and sign of love through His passion.
