Psalm 99

Epiphany 4 – Year A
Epiphany Last - Transfiguration

Psalm 99

"Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob." [vs. 4]

"There is no holiness but social holiness." ~ John Wesley

"Scriptural holiness may still be a worthy Methodist project in an ecumenical context but only if we take social, economic and political structures seriously and learn to read scripture and theology from a new socio-political perspective."
Wesley on Social Holiness from Methodist.org.uk

Letting others know they are Beloved is a beginning spot for the kind of holiness that we hear about in verse 3, "Let them praise your great and awesome name. Holy is God."

"There is no holiness but social holiness." ~ Your Name Here

How do you hear verses 3 & 4? Are they the equivalent of the double commandment to love G*D with all ya got and Neighbor as self? If so when was the last time you were heard affirming, "There is no holiness but social holiness!"
