1.     Based on John 15:1-17 and Romans 6:1-23, what does it mean to belong to Christ and live in him, rather than belonging to one’s self and being of the world?

2.     2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” The Bible seems to indicate that for the person who is “in Christ,” that person’s identity is changed such that all previous conceptions of identity are replaced with a new Christian identity. Explain the New Testament perspective on identity in Christ, including references to being a “child” of God, being forgiven, being set apart, and other related ideas, and describe the significance of this for your own life.
