The disciples wondered saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. (John 9:2, 3 NKJV). 
And here we see 2 major facts
1.the cross is one of life's prerequisites  and pain is an important necessity we can't avoid..and no one can escape from it  . For both the saint and the sinner suffers pain ,Jesus Himself was not exempted for in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted,(Hebrews 2:18 NKJV)
2. That pain does not stand alone 
For there are salvation benefits for this pain and God glorifies within it.
The man born blind had pain( the bitter truth) but there was another truth revealed by Lord Jesus when He said"the works of God should be revealed in him"when the light of God shed on this blind man and kicked darkness out..and the work of God revealed by this miracle.
"And we know that all things work together  for good ( including pain) to those who love God, (Romans 8:28 NKJV)

At first The Samaritan woman  had resisted all attempts of Lord Jesus with  her to speak with Christ  but with his long-suffering, love and longing for her salvation she couldn't resist his care and love .. Just like that my beloved we must not resist God's work with us and open our hearts for Him ; so He  can give us to drink of the living water that we won't drink from this world's water that will never be watering to our souls  but drink from the Holy Spirit water that is watering to our souls ..

In this day the church commemorates the Annunciation

When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, (John 5:6 NKJV)
While he was starring at the water hoping for healing .. He didn't think of Jesus He Himself who healed plenty .. Nor yelled like another saying " oh mercy son of David" neither did he reach out his hands to touch him among the crowd to be cured.or looked at him with longing eyes ..When Jesus saw him ...
He is lying there  prisoner to his own heavy weary body and crushed soul of pain and loneliness. He is prisoner of his hopes .. He cannot imagine healing anywhere outside the pool .. Moreover prisoner of his own despair because the very long time breaks down hope. He is prisoner to 38 which implies lacking because 40 is a tenth number that implies perfection ..
So he is lacking 2 numbers to reach perfection... What is he missing ?!!
He is missing an angel from heaven to stir the water, and that's the divine part and is missing someone to put him in the water and that's the human part ..
So Christ ;God in Flesh...came to him He who is both divine and human..
Christ when He saw humanity lying and knew that it had already  been a long Time, when the fullness of time had come He came to give her full healing .
Today oh Lord you expose your caring  to us .. For you are the healing, fullness, and perfection.. 
The word "do you want to be mad well" was cure to a desperate soul.. And the word "rise take up your bed and walk" was cure to the weary body.. 
And the word “you have been made well. Sin no more, " was cure to the sin spirit ..
Oh true physician  ; heal.the sickness of our souls,bodies and spirits . For You are the hope of those who are hopeless and the help of those who have no helper; the comfort of the fainthearted; the harbor of those in the storm. For thine the glory
