Holy people testify to God’s holiness. Alone, humans cannot show God’s holiness. Too much evil, injustice, and pain exist in the world for individuals alone to manifest God’s goodness. That is why the Hebrew Scriptures say that we are saved together. In this process, we need God’s grace. The communal dimension of God’s salvation is felt most strongly in family bonds. Family members need one another as they move toward salvation.
