God of the Oppressed

jesuswept

The God that I know chooses people every time. He cares deeply about humanity. He is a refuge for the oppressed and hates the oppressors. A shelter for the refugees. He turns no one away. My God is close to the broken. When they hurt, He hurts. He does not stand on a pedestal and judge. He turns from the self-righteous and walks with the suffering.

Matthew 25:41-46: 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
