The letter to the Ephesians is filled with rich themes encompassing a wide range of important doctrine and duty in the Christian life. Yet it is fundamentally a letter whose primary burden is remind and/or instruct various local churches that the gospel of Jesus Christ has formed them into a new and unique kind of community. In the opening lines of the letter, in what is a very customary salutation from the ancient (Christian) world, Paul hits on several things that are necessary if we will faithfully live as the community of faith.
