2015.06.16: God with us

Who keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed
who gives bread to the hungry.
The LORD sets prisoners free;
the LORD gives sight to the blind.
The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
The LORD protects the resident alien – Ps 146:6-9


little faith is needed
to believe in a god
who lifts up the oppressed
feeds the hungry
free the falsely imprisoned
gives sight to the blind
loves the righteous
protects the unwanted strangers
all that would be required is gratitude

on the other hand
to keep believing and hoping
when you are oppressed
when you are hungry
when you are imprisoned on false charges
when you are blind
when you are unloved
when you are persecuted for being a stranger
that is FAITH

when God is in the world
those who are grateful and able
of the own will and volition
lift up the oppressed
feed the hungry
free the falsely imprisoned
be a seeing guide for the blind
love the unrighteous
welcome the stranger
that is Love
then the body of God is visible
God is with us
