Description of the today’s Word of God
Today is the fourth Sunday of lent in the liturgical year year A. The theme of today’s word of God is that Jesus is healing a blind man who later becomes the missionary to proclaim the Good news that he received from Jesus.
Jesus is able to heal external and internal eyes.
Jesus is the one who is able to heal both eyes like internal eyes and external eyes. The doctors can only heal your external eyes, but Jesus as God is able to heal your inner eyes which is more important as your external eyes are important for you.
If you cannot experience God and humanity in your heart, your inner eyes are blind. If your inner eyes are blind your external eyes will not give you any divine nature for you.

If you are not blind …
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited,provoking and envying each other.
