Quote from Luther’s 1535 Galatians commentary

“God is the God of the humble, the miserable, the afflicted, the oppressed, the desperate, and of those who have been brought down to nothing at all. And it is the nature of God to exalt the humble, to feed the hungry, to enlighten the blind, to comfort the miserable and afflicted, to justify sinners, to give life to the dead, and to save those who are desperate and damned.”

[Martin Luther, Lectures on Galatians (1553), American Edition LW, 26:314
