Chapter Summary

This chapter states that Christians do not belong to themselves and do not have their own identity. Their being is in Christ. The grace of Christ is that He takes on death on behalf of people. He liberates the people from their identity that people create as sinners. People are members of his body just as ears, eyes, hands, feet, and head belong together. The body is Christ. Conversion is the transition from ethics to sanctification. Sanctification is expression of people's identity in Christ. The craving to change the world has a long tradition in the church. Christians do not try to change the world because the world will not change for the better. Christian identity is identity in Christ, and that is no other confession than: The earth is the Lord's and its fullness. Therefore, Christian identity is saving the world precisely by dying to the world.
